Summary

The unit is subdivided into six learning hours spread across six lessons, plus a test, in order to fit with most school timetables. It is a theoretical unit covering Section 2.6 of the latest OCR GCSE Computer Science specification. Each lesson contains a worksheet to be done in class to consolidate students’ knowledge and understanding, as well as a homework sheet to give them plenty of practice in answering exam-type questions. The conversion of integers from denary to binary is covered in the first lessons, together with simple binary addition, overflow and shifts. Check digits are also covered by practical example. In subsequent lessons, the use of hexadecimal numbers and the binary representation of characters is described. Representation of images and sound, and compression techniques are covered in three separate lessons. In the final lesson students sit an assessment test comprising questions similar to those found on the OCR exam paper.

Professional looking resources that would enable consistency within the department and the use of worksheet and homework task that comprehensively covered the spec points

The units we have ordered are proving really useful and helpful with development of materials for new specs.  The Maths for D&T have been particularly helpful.
