A Level Computer Science: Computational Methods
This module contains:
Compatible with the following examination boards
A problem is said to be computable if there is an algorithm that can solve every instance of it in a finite number of steps. Understanding the problem is the first step to problem-solving. To understand the problem, we need all data to understand the problem.
It is also important to check whether the problem is solvable. If it is solvable, a complex problem can be broken down into simpler modules, that can be further solved individually.
This A Level Computer Science module introduces computational methods to your students, explaining:
- Problem-solving strategies such as divide and conquer, top-down approach & problem abstraction
- Techniques for problem-solving such as back-tracking, data mining, heuristics, pipelining and many more.
