GCSE Computer Science Paper 1 Revision Work Booklet - Topic Quizzes and Model Answers - AQA 8520

GCSE Computer Science Paper 1 Revision Work Booklet - Topic Quizzes and Model Answers - AQA 8520

This is a collection of module quizzes covering key content that is assessed in paper 1 of the new specification GCSE. I will be using these as a final push for my current year 11s in the run up to the final exam. They are specifically designed for AQA 8520 spec, but content is also suitable for OCR and other boards. In total there are 4 double page module quizzes, along with answers to each. The key topics are: Computational Thinking, Programming Basics (Pseudocode/flowcharts), Development and Testing and advanced programming (subroutines etc.) There are questions covering the vast majority of the specification, but these are in no way intended to be exhaustive. The question style features exam style questions, along with question types designed to prompt recall and understanding. Full answers are provided for each quiz. Note: These module quizzes can be obtained individually, or as a complete package, in my TES shop. If you have already purchased any module quizzes, or if you want topics spanning both paper 1 and 2, it may be better to buy the others instead. Hope these help. Thanks, Toby Watkins

Binary Shift Information and Practice

Binary Shift Information and Practice

Binary Shift Information and Practice Activities This resource consists of a basic explanation of binary shifts (left and right) showing illustarted examples of how to perform the operations. There are also examples and activities to complete. The resource is linked to two videos that show how to perform the shift operations using 1 and 0’s. The practical activities are best performed by representing the 1 and 0’s on the printed sheet using plastic spoons, buttons, lollipop sticks with 1 and 0 written on them (or any other way to represent to 1 or the 0). The activity has deliberately been devised to be hands-on. Useful for KS3 and KS4 GCSE Computer Studies

Computer Science - KEYWORDS TABOO

Computer Science - KEYWORDS TABOO

This is a powerpoint of over 140 keywords for GCSE Computer Science. Mainly for the AQA Specification but could also be used for other exam boards. Free to use by anyone but drop me an email if you do use as it would be noce to know woh has used it. The game is called TABOO. It is where the powerpoint is presented at the front and there is different teams. So you could have 2 teams and each team selects a player. Team one player goes and sits in front of the board, facing away from the board. Then their team has to describe the word that comes up on the board without saying the banned words on the screen or the word it self. The person facing away from the board has to guess what the word is behind them. The team with the most correct answers wins. A time limit is fun to do.
