Variables, Data types, Input and Selection

Variables, Data types, Input and Selection

This lesson is ideal for helping students use Flowgorithm. It introduces the concepts of variables and data types in Flowgorithm. This can be used at KS3 and KS4 as an introduction to programming. The students will create two flowcharts during this lesson: 1) A very simple one that uses inputs 2) A grade calculator that takes input from the user. Once students have completed this lesson they will be able to use Flowgorithm to: Get the user to enter an input. Use concatenation. Make decisions based on user input. This includes a paper based exercise for the students to use in class or it can be used as homework.

Program Errors and Resilience Algorithm

Program Errors and Resilience Algorithm

This flowchart shows the links between fixing errors and resilience and also that repeated practice leads on to mastery, the more programming is practiced, they better you will get! The flowchart algorithm can be used in classes as a discussion point and a display. The embedded graphic can be resized, printed, cut-out and stuck into exercise books as a reminder that making mistakes is OK, normal and part of the programming cycle.

J276 - Computer Science GCSE - Revision Question Cards

J276 - Computer Science GCSE - Revision Question Cards

I have created question cards for all topics in the OCR Computer Science GCSE (J276). These were used by my Year 11 Cohort, they have found them quite effective as support tools in lessons and revision at home. They work great for testing students knowledge after delivering a topic as well as extending questioning individually in lessons. I have created wall display that has each Topic Easy, Medium and Hard. This allows students to collect a question card to further their learning whenever they want too. I have used Blooms style questioning allowing for the testing of knowledge, application of knowledge and then applying it further. I have named these ‘Attained it…’, ‘Applied it…’ and ‘Advanced it…’ respectively. All the cards have been designed to be printed double sided on the short edge, This is so that the topic name is on the back. All cards are using the ‘OpenDyslexic’ font, this can be seen on the PDF’s. Formatting may differ on the publisher document if you do not have the font installed. This pack consists of the original publisher file’s as well as PDFs of all the cards too. I have also created a PDF of each set of cards that represent each separate paper of the OCR course, as well as one for all topics across the course. The content does not differ from the collective one to the individual in any way. Enjoy!
