Python SEVEN ten min starters / plenaries, short lessons

Python SEVEN ten min starters / plenaries, short lessons

There are 7 ten minute Python starters, or plenaries in this presentation. They include identifying code purpose, spotting errors, discussing efficiency of coding. The codes themselves are also useful for ideas of scripts learners can create, add to, or change. They include IF, sub routine, tuples, and other structures. The kids actually love solving the problems. All but one (open ended one) have the solutions on slide 2, to either share, or use as a mark scheme.

MORE Python Challenges - The Basics

MORE Python Challenges - The Basics

Includes a handout giving example code and 7 NEW challenges to try out. Python files also included to allow you to demonstrate one possible answer for each challenge to your class. Pupils will use the following programming features to complete the challenges: • input • print • line breaks • integer and floating-point numbers • basic mathematical functions (+, -, *, / and //) Ideal for a NEA resource bank or to use for starter or plenary activities or use them for homework tasks. Easy to use and integrate into your lessons and handy to have around for pupils who finish other challenges early and need something to do.

***OCR CamTech Unit 2 FULL DELIVERY - Slides + Tasks (30+ files for delivery)***

***OCR CamTech Unit 2 FULL DELIVERY - Slides + Tasks (30+ files for delivery)***

This resource was created and delivered in school. All students on the course passed using this delivery. I have zipped the file as it contains 34 files in total that cover the theory and tasks. This will reduce workload to create resources and the task sheets can be used to mark and provide feedback on. ***Created in a way that as the students complete the task, they can print the work and that will be their revision material for the exam***

Classification Chart/Tree

Classification Chart/Tree

I used this as a warmer - the children had to name my 6 nieces and nephews by using their pictures and the classification chart/decision tree. Once they understood how it worked I had them make their own classification chart based on identifying 6 chosen members of their class.

1.2.2 - Applications Generation - OCR - Translators: Interpreters, Compilers & Assemblers

1.2.2 - Applications Generation - OCR - Translators: Interpreters, Compilers & Assemblers

This is a step by step presentation which explains how Translators work. It explains the need for them and explains why we use compilers and assemblers. The presentation gives some diagrams and it also has a task. Students are expected to write up these notes and they're then given some exam style questions which they can use research to support. They might not know what JavaScript is at this point. This presentation will help them work towards it.
