Summary - New: 3rd Edition

This unit assumes that pupils already have some prior experience in Python or a similar language, and the first lesson has a series of tasks designed to revisit the basic skills already covered. Pupils then use For loops and compare their use with While loops, before moving on to arrays (lists), which are introduced as a new data structure and are used in conjunction with For loops. Procedures and functions with parameters are covered to help pupils understand the concept and benefits of modular programming. This unit is designed to take pupils right up to a point where a GCSE in Computing can pick up and should provide ample experience of programming in order to confirm any decision to pursue Computing as a GCSE option.

What people say...

A fantastic set of resources to support both teachers and students in the delivery of the new computing curriculum. We would be lost without it.

Catherine Williams. Head of Department, St Bede's Inter-Church School

A generation ahead of everything else.  Perfect resources to give to non-specialists to deliver lessons with authority.
