KS3 Python Unit of Work

KS3 Python Unit of Work

This unit of work covers python and guides the learners through this programming language it contains the following: - 64 slide powerpoint covering skills from basic python statements all the way to functions and lists. - Python Booklet - Student booklet to guide them through the topics with a mixture of different tasks to complete. - Python key Terms booklet: For students to take screenshots and build up their own revision notes. - A mixture of worksheets for specific lessons. - Programs to support specific lessons within the unit. - Programming challenges contained within the python booklet for students to complete. My team found these resources helpful to teach students the basics of python even if you are a CS teacher or not. Thanks for taking the time to look at my resources I hope it supports your students well.

Algorithms, Maths & micro:bit: 5 fun coding activities

Algorithms, Maths & micro:bit: 5 fun coding activities

5 fun activities exploring the micro:bit, mathematics, and algorithm creation in Python and JavaScript Blocks. This short activity booklet explores the use of computing in order to calculate mathematical constants and carry out advanced mathematical functions. This could be used as an introduction to algorithms or mathematics & computing. In these activities we will use Python and JavaScript Blocks to calculate Pi & e, as well as creating a function to calculate factorials. Along the way we will learn a number of key skills: - Introducing & breaking down problems and algorithms - Solving and re-arranging equations - Real-world use of computing - Introduction to mathematical constants - Coding in Python & JavaScript Blocks - Utilising key equations for geometry & shapes - Memory issues & efficiency - Coding Skills: - Variables - Loops - Conditions - Advanced mathematical functions

Python Programming FULL COURSE

Python Programming FULL COURSE

This is a full unit of work for Python Software Development. There are 10 individual tasks for the students to complete, each of which take an average of 1 lesson to complete. Each task has several challenge activities to stretch students abilities and understanding and aims to get them independently learning. These activities again can be used to deepen comprehension and I use these as further lessons for students to develop their pseudocode writing skills etc. I have included a PPT file with the lessons objectives and aims, as well as the skills/area of coding covered by that particular task. Some of the tasks give the students some partially completed activities in Python, these are also included in a folder, as well as the fully working solutions to all of the activities. All in, this is a very thorough unit of work which will last anywhere from 10 - 30 lessons, depending how independent you want students to work, how long is spent designing plans for the program before implementing and how long is spent designing test tables and testing.
