Exercises in Computational Thinking

Exercises in Computational Thinking

10 scenarios with tasks develop students’ understanding of abstraction, decomposition and algorithmic thinking. Perfect for use at KS4 level, including the new GCSE (9-1) Computer Science specifications!

Scenarios feature a range of ‘real’ problems that students can relate to – greenhouse, paper-rock-scissors, password checker, and more!

For each scenario, students progress through the following tasks:

  • Task A – analyse the problem and identify inputs, processes and outputs
  • Tasks B and C – create visual representations of the problem using flow diagrams and pseudocode
  • Extension – produce a coded solution using a suitable language

Facilitating lessons are visually engaging PowerPoints which include the scenarios, tasks and solutions (including Python3 code for the extension) all in one place!

Use as a standalone resource for problem solving/skills development, or as part of a PoS when teaching relevant topics as part of a curriculum. Each scenario has difficulty grading and skills cross-referencing to aid your planning.
