I have recently updated my coding activities. This is my introductory unit that I use in the first year of GCSE. It starts of with basics such as inputs and outputs, complex selection (IF) statements, building up to introductory arrays tasks.
I have included links to the tutorial videos for the tasks which require them.
I have included the student ‘starter’ files for some of the programs that require them
I have included solution python files for the majority of tasks.
The booklet has about 15 individual tasks. Several of these have extension tasks.
Some of the individual tasks are actually a set of 10-15 challenging coding questions.
This represents my full first year of introducing Python coding to GCSE level. I have other follow up activity booklets after this one that focus on STRING manipulation, FUNCTIONS, ARRAYS and 2D ARRAYS including FILE READING AND WRITING as well as some exemplar PROJECT PRACTICE tasks which I will be uploading shortly.
I have uploaded the booklet in word format, so you can make changes if necessary and taken off the front cover.
60 page activity document
15+ individual coding acitivities
Extension activities for each task
Several activities are challenging with 15+ individual coding challenges
Video tutorial links to support staff training and students requiring additional support
Student Python files as starting point
Assessment 'coursework' activity
I have also included a PPT of starter questions which I use at the beginning of the lessons.
I have uploaded separately some of the End of Topic quizzes which assess the understanding of this area.
I have also included an activity in here which I use as an introduction to the GCSE coursework, but it is scaled down and appropriate to the material covered
I haven’t included solutions for the challenges, or for the activities with the video support - if you think that you need these, please email me, but if you are following the scheme of work, they should be good problem solving practice.
