The document is set of tasks that pupils must provide evidence that they have completed. It does not teach students how to create the game.
A python programming challenge where students are expected to write a program that checks if a password is considered to be strong. The password must be greater than a certain length, include numbers, symbols, upper & lower case letters, not contain certain words or number pattens.
The booklet includes:
A tick sheet for when students have managed a certain task
A test plan to check that certain passwords are ‘strong’ or not
Some useful snipits of python code that will assist the students.
An extension task.
Good practice for string manipulation.
Depending on your group ability, this could be a 1 or 2 lesson activity.
