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

Flowchart revision task for GCSE Computer Science

Flowchart revision task for GCSE Computer Science

A 2-page handout for pupils to revise flowcharts / flow diagrams in GCSE Computer Science. Can be used as a homework task or in class activity. It asks the pupils to explain what is happening in 5 common flowchart types (sequence, selection, repeat until loop, do while loop and for loop). This is a Word document, so you can upload it to your VLE for the pupils to complete online or it can be printed and photocopied as you see fit. Suitable for use as a revision aid for all exam boards. There is also a 1-page teacher’s guide on marking the task. Includes the correct answer, common mistakes and tips you can give pupils about how to access the higher grades.

GCSE Computer Science 9-1 NEA No longer counts - it's all the exams now!

GCSE Computer Science 9-1 NEA No longer counts - it's all the exams now!

In response to added emphasis on the Component 1 & Component 2 exams, following the NEA decision, I have re-structured my approach in lessons running up to the exams. Attached are two structured lessons which target specific 'question' styles at the beginning of the lessons, with revision of theory (based on OCR guidance - separate powerpoint theory on OCR website) before attempting a) for component 1, a QWC extended question or b) for component b, a writing algorithm questions. Over the coming weeks, as I develop the lessons to focus on areas of weakness shown in mock exams, I will upload further lessons in the hopes they can prepare your students for assessment as well.

OCR Computer Science Checklist

OCR Computer Science Checklist

A checklist i gave to my students to help them cover the key aspects of the specificiation. They tick each box as they go along and feel confident in that area. A good tool to locate weaknesses and improve!
