2.1 Algorithms/Pseudocode Exam Style Questions and Answers

5 pages of exam style questions (these have been created by myself in the format of OCR exam questions), with the answers (and examples) written on the following sheet. If printed back to back it provides students with exam question practice, in a booklet format, with answers for KS4 students to peer/self-assess the answers. This is a brilliant revision resource for a topic that covered 19 out of 80 marks on last years paper! Can be given to students as a homework/revision resource or used as part of a lesson (or 2 or 3) for writing pseudocode. This revision guide covers: algorithms pseudocode functions procedures IF statements loops MOD DIV constants variables
Entire Lesson Set For GCSE Computer Science (J277 - new spec) - both papers!

Entire Lesson Set For GCSE Computer Science (J277 - new spec) - both papers!

(0)
62 x 1 hour lessons that cover the entire course! Including some great lessons on tricky topics such as Networks, Logic Gates, Binary/Hex and writing code. Entire set of lessons planned on PowerPoint for both paper 1 and paper 2 of GCSE OCR Computer Science (will benefit other exam boards as well). This is planned for the new spec J277 released for this coming year. Each unit has in-depth lessons planned, in font OpenDyslexic, on SEND friendly background, and with clear Bell Works / Objectives & Outcomes / content tasks to learn / exam questions to practice. There are no logos on any of the PPTs and there are well over 2000 slides of information here. I planned these during 2018-19 and progress in the subject at my new school went from -0.05 to +0.41 in a year! Predictions for this year were record breaking again at ~+0.8! The attainment was also the highest the school had ever had, and we had a very large mixed ability cohort in both years. These lessons able you to read over them for 5 minutes then off you go teaching, with only your pointer needed. Example answers to the questions are given to aid students with effective modelling - showing exactly where the marks are gained. For the more challenging content recap sessions are in-built for the following lesson. Note: 1.6 only has 1 lesson on laws - the rest of the lessons on ethics etc are covered in class by a series of videos (not able to include these) and discussions - I have found this more useful when revising the topic in year 11 and students have done similar topics in other subjects (RS etc). The content is as follows: - 1.1 - 4 lesson PPTs - 1.2 - 13 lesson PPTs - 1.3 - 13 lesson PPTs - 1.4 - 3 lesson PPTs - 1.5 - 3 lesson PPTs - 1.6 - 1 lesson PPT - 2.1 - 9 lesson PPTs - 2.2 - 8 lesson PPTs - 2.3 - 3 lesson PPTs - 2.4 - 3 lesson PPTs - 2.5 - 2 lesson PPTs All are very clearly labelled and numbered to keep them in order. You will not be disappointed! But you will save a huge amount of time!!!
