Work for Year 11 Computer Science

by Steven Bramall -

It would be good to give you a longer task for the next 3-4 weeks or so so you can really get your teeth into something substantial.

We started the NEA task last term and I think it would be good practice to get this as far as you can. All the materials are on the Exams course and I will add a space to upload it for feedback. I will add my own version shortly as a fallback. You would normally spend upto 15 hours programming this so how about spending 3 x 3 lessons to see how far you can get. The section needs a txt file which you can download.

If this is too much, you could do the whole task but just as an algorithm (flowchart). We started this in class, but you could continue. Any issues just email me.

UPDATE: it is likely that your final GCSE grade will be a combination of your mock, this NEA and some other task - full details to follow.
