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.

AS Programming Book 1 (Python 3.x)

AS Programming Book 1 (Python 3.x)

This workbook contains thirteen exemplar programs to be entered by the students, tested and analysed. It covers the basics of Python coding from variable types and declaration, calculation, input / output, selection statements (IF... ELSE) and iteration (FOR). It also covers two examples of user-defined module libraries which reinforces the theory eBook concepts the students have learned about in class. I use these programs to develop student confidence in Python programming but also to develop their understanding of program design.

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.
