Lesson 4 - Using search tools

In this lesson, pupils develop their search techniques to answer questions about the data. They use advanced techniques to search for more than one field, and practice doing this through both unplugged methods (without using computers), and using a computer database.

Learning objectives

• ...

Lesson 3 - Using a database

In this lesson, pupils investigate how records can be grouped, using both the paper record cards created in lesson one and a computer based database from J2E. They use ‘grouping’ and ‘sorting’ to answer questions about the data.

Learning objectives

• To outline how grouping and then sorting...

Lesson 2 - Computer databases

In this lesson, pupils use a computer-based database to examine how data can be recorded and viewed. They learn that a database consists of ‘records’, and that each record contains ‘fields’. In addition, they will order records in different ways and compare this database to the paper database they created in lesson...

Lesson 4 - What is an attribute?

During this lesson, pupils will think about ways in which objects can be grouped by attribute. They will then tally objects using a common attribute and present the data in the form of a pictogram. Pupils will answer questions based on their pictograms using mathematical vocabulary such as ‘more than’/’less than’...

Lesson 1 - Creating a paper-based database

In the first lesson, pupils create a paper version of a record card database. Using a card template, they create a data set, with each pupil creating eight to ten cards linked to a theme, eg animals. They complete records for each of the animals in their database and then physically sort the cards to answer...

Lesson 3 - Creating pictograms

During this lesson, pupils will think about the importance of effective data collection and will consider the benefits of different data collection methods: why, for example, we would use a pictogram to display the data collected. They will collect data to create a tally chart and use this to make a pictogram on a...

Lesson 6 - Evaluating a quiz

In this lesson, pupils will return to their completed programs and identify ways in which the program can be improved. They will focus on issues where answers similar to those in the condition are given as inputs, and identify ways to avoid such problems. Pupils will also consider how the outcomes may change the...

Lesson 5 - Testing a quiz

In this lesson, pupils will use the Scratch programming environment to implement the first section of their algorithm as a program. They will run the first section of their program to test whether they have correctly used selection to control the outcomes, and debug their program if required. They will then...

Lesson 4 - Planning a quiz

In this lesson, pupils will be provided with a task: to use selection to control the outcomes in an interactive quiz. They will outline the requirements of the task and use an algorithm to show how they will use selection in the quiz to control the outcomes based on the answer given. Pupils will complete their...
