Data representation and impact of number of bits used

Data representation and impact of number of bits used

Used as a recap in preparation for OCR GCSE 9-1: J276/02 - 2.6 Data Representation section. Covers how the number of bits used changes the range of numbers that can be represented and leads on to looking at the other types of data covered in the spec. Reminds students that #bits relates to #colours available for each pixel etc. Rather than the common "improves quality". Images, sound, numbers, characters. Editable activity sheet.

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!

Python Programming FULL COURSE

Python Programming FULL COURSE

This is a full unit of work for Python Software Development. There are 10 individual tasks for the students to complete, each of which take an average of 1 lesson to complete. Each task has several challenge activities to stretch students abilities and understanding and aims to get them independently learning. These activities again can be used to deepen comprehension and I use these as further lessons for students to develop their pseudocode writing skills etc. I have included a PPT file with the lessons objectives and aims, as well as the skills/area of coding covered by that particular task. Some of the tasks give the students some partially completed activities in Python, these are also included in a folder, as well as the fully working solutions to all of the activities. All in, this is a very thorough unit of work which will last anywhere from 10 - 30 lessons, depending how independent you want students to work, how long is spent designing plans for the program before implementing and how long is spent designing test tables and testing.
