Program Aim Version 1 Designed as a follow up program to extend computing understanding and support the Maths curriculum. I don’t use this until pupils have created other easier projects first. I often teach this over two sessions with the majority of pupils creating a series of missing number puzzles for the second session. This program includes the use of a simple list to record the numbers after they are increased in every repetition.
Revision I have added a flowchart introduction sheet to help pupils to think about what is happening to the variable inside the loop and rewritten first parts of the lesson.
Program Aim Version 2 Designed as a follow up program to extend computing understanding and support the Maths curriculum. I don’t use this until pupils have created other easier projects first. In the first part of this module pupils help to design a counting machine using a flow chart. In the second part pupils use what they have learn’t to create a simple count down timer. This version doesn’t include the use of a list.I have included both versions as they both have merit in different ways.
