This early edition of the Computing at School (CAS) newsletter includes articles on Scratch programming and curriculum structure in lower secondary school. Also, videos showing the importance of maths in computer science are highlighted.
A series of eleven guided tasks with LiveCode for students with some prior experience, based on the full software development cycle.
Variables and arrays are assigned using keyboard input, logic and maths calculations are carried out and the results displayed in a simple user interface.
This series of lessons and exercises covers more advanced programming concepts and techniques. Pseudocode is used within the full development cycle to aid understanding of event-driven programs. Variables are covered in-depth, and a range of loops and selection statements are used for flow of control. Complex array...
Using a spreadsheet as a grid of 'pixels', this computing activity teachers how 1's and 0's can store image data. The classroom exercises use images with increasing pixel resolution, looking at how this affects the clarity of the image. Moving from black-and-white images, the students then use grids of colour...
This learning resource is an introduction to programming with Python. Versions are included for Python 2.7 and Python 3.
The fundamentals of programming are covered:
• Arithmetic operations
• Data types
• Control flow
As well as some more advanced techniciques including the use of:...
This textbook is written to explain computing from first principles, and appeals to a broad audience beyond many computing texts. With clear and concise explanation, useful diagrams and a structure that builds on previous understanding, it is aimed at post-16 students but sections would be equally useful at all...
This e-book gives an introduction to programming in the BASIC language for middle to high school students. It can be used as:
*a nine or 18 week-long introduction to programming
*a brief introduction to programming concepts
*an introduction to data structures for non-programmers
Under the banner of Building a successful network, Dr Katherine Forsey and Sue Churm consider how to create a technical network and how to get the most from it, Jenny Phillips explores the challenges FE practitioners face and Ed Walsh explains what the teacher recognition scheme...
