#### GCSE Bitmap Image File Size Calculator Programming Lesson

This lesson is based around programming skills and knowledge, as the students work through the worksheet (on the computers is best a they can copy and paste code snippets into the other document). Once they have answered the questions on the worksheet they should also have the Bitmap Calculator Code document containing the code snippets required to create the program. Then they can go onto Visual Basic to write the program, and test it to see if it is working correctly. There are also a couple of extension tasks at the bottom of the worksheet. I have also included the final code that I used to demonstrate the program working at the start of the lesson, and the PowerPoint which I used to outline the task and give them instructions on how to complete the tasks.

#### GCSE Brute Force Malware Programming Lesson

A programming lesson designed to help the students improve their programming skills, as well as learning about brute force attacks. The lesson begins with a research task and ends with a step-by-step activity to create a program that will guess a password that the user has entered. Included is the PowerPoint presentation, programming instructions for students, and the final code in a text file for the teacher.

#### Fundamentals of programming - advanced

The fundamentals of programming in more depth and with more examples.

#### Small Basic Loops

A lesson on loops in Small Basic

#### GCSE Arrays Introduction

A powerpoint introduction to arrays (GCSE) including why they are used, and a programming task at the end. Also included in this resource is the full code (Visual Basic) for all four tasks at the end of the presentation.

#### GCSE Run Length Encoding Programming Lesson tasks

This resource contains tasks for a complete programming lesson based on Run Length Encoding. If students have looked at the theory this lesson is a good follow up as it improves their programming skills and reinforces the theory learned previously. Included in this resource is a self-marking Excel starter document, and Powerpoint presentation for the lesson. The code with tasks is included for students to copy and paste into Visual Basic, or pseudocode for more of a challenge. EDITED: Now includes a basic Testing table in a Word document so the students can prove that their program is working and become familiar with the process for their coursework.

#### GCSE Battleships programming project

This is a programming project that I have used over 3 lessons with my mixed ability Year 10 class. Included is a PowerPoint with the main programming challenges, and the full code for demonstrating the game before the students make it (Visual Basic). Each challenge should be discussed before the students choose either the code (easier) or pseudocode (harder) images to help them with the programming. Images have been used to avoid copy and pasting. The pseudocode will need to be translated into code and the code images contain key words blanked out to avoid pure copying.

#### GCSE Programming Four in a row 2D arrays project

Included is a programming project to recreate a well known game that I have used with a mixed ability Year 10 class. The project took 3-4 lessons and includes the powerpoint highlighting the main challenges in creating the game, the full code (Visual Basic), pseudocode for the whole program and images of code/pseudocode for each challenge that the programmers face. Images were used for this to prevent students copy and pasting the code. To differentiate, after talking through solving each challenge as a class, the students were able to load up the image of either the code or pseudocode, and type the code required into their program. The pseudocode is more challenging as it needs translating into code, and the code has key words missing so it is not just about copying the code into their program. I have also included teaching notes on how to discuss the different challenges, and a help sheet on 2-dimensional arrays.

#### GCSE Bubble Sort Programming Lesson

Included is a presentation reviewing the Bubble Sort method, and an interactive Excel activity that can is self-marking and can give students immediate feedback. There is also a help sheet for anyone who has missed the Bubble Sort theory or needs help with the activities, and differentiated instructions for writing a Bubble Sort program (I used Visual Basic but the code hints could be adapted to another language quickly). I have also included the lesson plan that I used for a lesson observation. There are notes on AfL and differentiation included in the plan.

#### Programming Malware GCSE Lesson

GCSE lesson based around making the malware/cyber security topic related to programming. Looked online but couldn't find anything useful so created a 'virus' program to teach the students without giving them information on how to do anything illegal. Code works in Visual Basic, and is a good way to get the students hooked. Also worth mentioning that the 'virus' they create doesn't actually do anything malicious, it just appears that way, and gives them a chance to practice their programming techniques. Then they have instructions on the worksheet that they follow through until they have a working program. Powerpoint is also included.

#### GCSE Hangman Coding Project

Included is a booklet containing a series of tasks (16 in total) with hints for some of the trickier tasks. There are also code snippets which can be used alongside the tasks or as an extra aid for students who are struggling. Also included is a checklist which can be displayed during the project, so that students can update their progress through the tasks. I have used this with a year 10 class who found it enjoyable as well as getting good programming practice. The program makes use of variables, selection, definite and indefinite iteration, arrays, boolean variables and a linear search.

#### Scratch Hour of Code Vocabulary Jeopardy Game

This fun and engaging Jeopardy Style Game is the perfect way to bond with your class all year long and learn scratch. I typically put the class into small groups and ask a member of the group to choose a color and number. That is the question that they have to answer. If correct they get one point. Then I move to the next group. Alternatively the whole class answers and then we tally up the points to get a winner. I run it on an interactive whiteboard but would be equally successful on a projector, computer or TV screen. Alternatively it could be run for an individual student on their own device. When you start the game press the shuffle button to randomize the questions ensuring that no game is ever the same. This means that this Jeopardy game came be used multiple times with the one class as it is different every time. Once you have unzipped the file you will find a PowerPoint Macro Show. To run the game double click the file and make sure you say &quot;yes&quot; to running macros. If you do not the questions will not shuffle correctly. I have tested on a PC but it should work on other devices. If this is your first time with Macros let me know by personal message and I am happy to answer all your questions. Enjoy
