This resource is a PowerPoint that covers all aspects of the new updated National 5 Computer Systems (2017/18 onwards). It matches to the new arrangements and provides slides on all the content within the following: Development methodologies Analysis Design Implementation (data types and structures) Implementation (computational constructs) Implementation (algorithm specification) Testing Evaluation These slides have worked wonderfully well with my class and have made new parts of National 5 much more accessible to my classes. I have included a PDF version as well. The Fonts I have used are called Fortuna Dot and Abscissa The programming language that I use in some of the slides in Visual Basic

Create your own encryption/decryption tool using VBScript and Notepad.

Create your own encryption/decryption tool using VBScript and Notepad.

I use this worksheet as a practical task for my key stage 4 students whilst we are working on System Security. It is fairly easy but tends to involve much proofreading, editing and testing to ensure that all code is entered correctly (especially variable names). The program is explained at the end of the worksheet. It is not perfect, so feel free to amend or improve.

GCSE 9-1 50 Pseudo code or Programming challenges

GCSE 9-1 50 Pseudo code or Programming challenges

50 programming or pseudo code challenges- programs which could be given as an extension activity or out-of-class assignment to stretch and challenge learners of all key stages- as part of practicing selection and iteration and other programming techniques. These could be done using any programming language of your choice. These could be beneficial to prepare students for exams related to Algorithms and programming techniques. These can be used for KS3 and even A levels. Please send a message if you need solutions. All the best.
