We are beginning the OCR computing GCSE in September 2013. All resources will be uploaded once they have been created (its taking a while!).
Feel free to use any of these resources, but please send me a quick comment if you do so. Any feedback or suggestions are appreciated!
Posters, Displays and Revision Materials
A3 Wall Display – Popular websites and interesting facts
A5 Wall Display – Important people in the history of Computing
OCR Computing Unit A451
Unit 1: Computer Systems
1.1: Introduction to Computing – What is a computer system?
1.2: Reliability and Industry Standards
- Lesson 2 – Reliability
- System Reliability 12 System Reliability 11 System Reliability 10 System Reliability 9 System Reliability 8 System Reliability 7 System Reliability 6 System Reliability 5 System Reliability 4 System Reliability 2 System Reliability 3 System Reliability
1:3 Environmental, Legal and Ethical Computing (and standards)
1:4 Filming Movies
1:5 Editing Movies
1:6 Presenting Movies
2: Computer HardwareNote: I didn’t think the lessons in this unit (as taken from the specification and text book) flowed in the right order, so i alter them. I also decided that binary logic should be taught directly after the data representation unit, therefore that’s where all those resources will be.
2.1:Introduction to Hardware
2.2.1:Input and Output Devices
2.2.2:Devices for users with specific needs
2.3.1:Memory – RAM and ROM
2.3.2: Virtual, Cache etc
2.4: Secondary Storage
Unit 4 – Representing DataNote: According to OCR the final lesson in this unit should be on instructions, however we are leaving this lesson until we begin to introduce the LMC. This scheme also includes the logic gates lesson which i moved from Hardware.
Unit 4 Work Booklet – It is intended that students use the work booklet instead of an exercise book or an endless stream of worksheets. We found that some of the higher ability students steamed through the earlier parts, therefore further extension activities may be required.
Lesson 1: Binary Intro
Lesson 2: Addition
Lesson 3: Hex
Lesson 4: Ascii and Unicode
Lesson 5: Images
Lesson 6: Sound
Lesson 7: Binary Logic
