On behalf of Computing At School


Two Day A level Computer Science Theory Event


hosted by

darren.travi@computingatschool.org.uk

The Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe


Saturday May 16, 2020 9:00AM until Sunday May 17, 2020 5:00PM

An overview and techniques for teaching the most challenging topics in the linear A level Computing. This course is ideally suited for teachers who have been teaching GCSE Computing for some time. We will be focusing on the core theory common to all boards Delegates will go away for lots of resources to help them through the two years of teaching the course.

PROGRAMME

Time Topic 09:00 Registration and Refreshments 09:30 First TopicSession 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 13:30 Session 2: Data structures • Trees, stacks and queues • Graphs, linked lists, intractable algorithms, Dijkstra/A* 09:30 Session 1: Object Oriented Programming · Classes, Objects, Attributes, Methods · Encapsulation, Inheritance, Polymorphism, Aggregation, Composition, Overriding · Unified Modelling Language (UML) · Practical coding examples and exam questions 13:30 Session 2 Maths for Computer Science • Data representation – floating point arithmetic addition and subtraction, normalisation, masking and shifts
