​​Introduction to algorithms

​To program a computer, certain sets of logical instructions need to be provided.Sets of logical instructions for a computer can be designed only when the programmer thinks in the same way that a computer processes the instructions.Computational thinking is a thought process involved in formulating a problem and expressing its solution in such a way that computers can effectively carry it out.

This ​​KS3 Computer Science module introduces ​algorithm​s to your students, explaining:

  • ​​Designing algorithms
  • Various statements and structures used in pseudocodes
  • Various symbols used in flowcharts
