Understanding Number Bases GCSE Revision and KS3 data Representation introduction

This document is an ideal GCSE revision tool or used in KS3 as an introduction to data representation. It includes 5 page PDF handout which explains the theory of a decimal, binary and hexadecimal number base and gives three tasks to complete. Please note: This handout does not explain how to convert between number bases and only explains what each are and why binary and hexadecimal are used. It also includes a separate document containing the answers to the three tasks.

Data Transmission - serial and parallel data / parity bits and parity blocks

Data Transmission - serial and parallel data / parity bits and parity blocks

This is a full lesson on data transmission with all resources / activities. I use this for a double lesson of around 1 hour and 50 minutes and it provides a thorough understanding of simplex / duplex transmission and then goes on to look at serial / parallel transmission before finishing with odd and even parity bits and then parity blocks. The Learning Objectives are: • <strong>Understand what is meant by transmission of data</strong> • <strong>Know the difference between serial and parallel data transmission</strong> • <strong>understand of the reasons for choosing serial or parallel data transmission</strong> • <strong>Know why it is necessary to check for errors</strong> • <strong>Understand how parity works to identify if an error has occurred / locate errors</strong> Resources included: •Parallel Ports Handout •Serial Port Handout •Lesson Presentation •Parity demonstration •Parity Puzzle Plenary Please leave a review if you have any suggestions / comments

Coding, Collaboration, Communication and Curriculum in Finland

Coding, Collaboration, Communication and Curriculum in Finland

Computer science nurtures problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. The world is increasingly run by software and we need more diversity among those people who are building it. Not all students will be software developers or writers, doctors or translators, but we are already surrounded by technology and even more so in the future. The main point is to provide a basic understanding of society, living environment and fields of science and thus provide equal opportunities for all the learners. Understanding how computers work and how to use them well, gives children skills and knowledge to succeed in global competition and life generally. Year 3 pupils were not only taught the basics of coding, but they were taught to teach other classes the magic of coding. They have taught around 200 other children and teachers in Finland and India (via video) the Magic of Coding. You can learn more about the Coding Ambassadors here or email for an online course including videos and lesson plan for collaborative coding lessons.
