MrDaniels14

GCSE Computer Science - Data Representation: ASCII & Unicode - Worksheet

(0)
This worksheet is designed to allow students to broaden their knowledge of the ASCII and Unicode character coding schemes. The worksheet contains several questions about the history of ASCII as well as some about how many bits it uses to represent data. The worksheet then moves onto looking at Unicode and getting the students to use the Unicode website to find and retrieve details about specific Unicode characters. The worksheet conclused with a 4 mark questions that asks them to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of ASCII & Unicode. This download also contains the accompanying answer sheet (for everything except the 4 mark question).

GCSE Computer Science - Data Representation: ASCII Table - Handout

(1)
This resource is aimed at students studying GCSE Computer Science and contains all of the Denary, Hexadecimal and Binary codes for all of the original 128 ASCII characters, alongside the character symbols and a description of each symbol. It also contains details about a possible Extended ASCII set with some descriptions, alongside their equivalent Denary, Hexadecimal & Binary codes.
A-Level Computer Science - Baudot Code - Handout
MrDaniels14

A-Level Computer Science - Baudot Code - Handout

(0)
This resource is aimed at students looking at Encryption methods, specifically the Vernam Cipher. This is a copy of Baudot code that students would need to use to carry out the logical XOR with their keyword to produce the cipher text for their encrypted message. Whilst they are not required to know Baudot code, being able to more easily recognise this in preparation for their exam is useful.
AQA GCSE Computer Science (8520) - Student Tracker
MrDaniels14

AQA GCSE Computer Science (8520) - Student Tracker

(0)
This excel and word document combination is designed to be used to allow you to track and monitor the progress of students as you navigate through the theory elements of the AQA GCSE Computer Science (9 to 1) specification. In the word document there is a space for the students to note down their level of confidence with each of the points off the specification, there is also space for them to update this level of confidence as you revise/go over topics with them. The excel document gives the teacher the opportunity to enter a value of between 1 and 10 for each point on the specification to allow you to track the progress of the students with each part of the theory topics. It will break down each point on the specification and will show you roughly what percentage they have attained for each section of the theory course. It will also provide a working at grade (this is just calculated from all of the percentage understanding values from each section). UPDATE: 30/09/2018 - This resource now also includes an alternate version of the tracker to be used as a “Personalised Learning Checklist” with spaces for both the student and teacher to make comments. The “Book Chapters” mentioned on the PLC reference the AQA Computer Science for GCSE Students textbook by Hodder (Sean O’Byrne, George Rouse).

MrDaniels14

GCSE Computer Science - Data Representation: Representing Bitmap Images - Worksheet

(0)
This resource is aimed at students studying GCSE Computer Science. The worksheet contains a space for students to write down the key definitions for Bitmap image file types. It then provides a space for students to carry out some independant research into common resolutions. It then provides students with 2 image grids which contain strings of binary numbers which must be coloured accordingly in order to produce the associated image. The associated answer document is also included.
GCSE Computer Science - Calculating Image File Sizes - Worksheet
MrDaniels14

GCSE Computer Science - Calculating Image File Sizes - Worksheet

(1)
This resource is aimed at students studying GCSE Computer Science. The worksheet contains a space for students to write down the main steps required to calculate the file size of a given image file. It then contains 10 questions (3 of which are worked through) that require them to calculate the file size of the image. It also contains the associated answer sheet. NB: The measurements for KB, MB, GB have been used as multiples of 1000 as per the new 9-1 specifications.
A-Level Computer Science - Set Operators/Set Comprehension - Help Sheet
MrDaniels14

A-Level Computer Science - Set Operators/Set Comprehension - Help Sheet

(0)
This resource is aimed at students studying A-Level Computer Science and contains most of the common symbols they will come across when learning about Set Operations and Set Comprehension. This will save them time when constructing set comprehensions or set operations as they will be able to copy and paste the required symbols out of this document. It will also strengthen their understand of what each symbol means.
