About the Event

Summary

An understanding of algorithms is fundamental to success in GCSE computer science. To reach their full potential, students of GCSE computer science need to be confident in using decomposition and abstraction to solve problems.

Explore how each of the core search and sort algorithms function; exploring how they manipulate data structures and compare the relative efficiency of different methods.

Who is it for?

This course is for current or prospective teachers of GCSE computer science who have some understanding of computer science principles.

Prior knowledge:

You’ll need to understand the basic building blocks of algorithms, and how they are represented in pseudocode and flowcharts. If you’re looking for support with these topics, we recommend the Representing algorithms using flowcharts and pseudocode course. If you are entirely new to computer science, we recommend first participating in our one-day course: An introduction to algorithms, programming and data in GCSE computer science.
