A-Level computing: Two-Day Theory Course


July 6th 2019 at 9:00AM


The Khalsa Academy

Teaching techniques for the most-challenging topics in linear A-Level Computing. Ideally suited to teachers who have taught GCSE Computing for some time, and focussing on the core theory common to all exam boards.


Delegates will go away with lots of resources to help them through the two years of teaching the A-Level course.

DAY 1

Session 1 - fundamentals of programming and computational thinking:
Computational thinking
Standard and complex algorithms
Efficiency of different algorithms
Standard and complex algorithms (algorithms for Quick and Merge Sort)

Session 2 - data structures:
Trees, stacks and queues
Graphs; linked lists; intractable algorithms; Dijkstra/A*

DAY 2

Session 1 - object-oriented programming:
Classes, objects, attributes, and methods
Encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism, aggregation, composition, and overriding
Unified Modelling Language (UML)
Practical coding examples and exam questions

Session 2 - maths for Computer Science:
Data representation (floating-point arithmetic addition and subtraction, normalisation, masking and shifts)

Session 3 - review of exam questions:
A look at selected topics from various exam boards

SPEAKER

Darren Travi

Head of Computing at the Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe and a CAS Master Teacher, Darren leads the CAS South Buckinghamshire Community, teaching A-Level Computer Science since the 1990s and GCSE Computing since the course started in 2010.

All materials and resources used on this course will be made available to all delegates after the course.
