Summary

This unit begins by looking at computational thinking, including abstraction and decomposition. Two lessons are given to interpreting and comparing relevant searching and sorting algorithms including the merge and insertion sorts. These are written in the new OCR Reference Language. Practical experience of writing, tracing and modelling algorithms using pseudocode and flowcharts is then provided. Students are also be given ample practical experience of correcting and completing algorithms (including debugging and testing) in worksheets and homework tasks.
