KS3 Computer Science: Data Types
This module contains:
Compatible with the following examination boards
The representation of real-time components of a problem into variables allows us to represent the problem in such a way that it can be solved by a computer program.
Here is a simple mathematical problem. A plumber earns $20 per hour. In addition to that, he earns a bonus of $50 for each job he completes. In a week, if he works for 22 hours and earns $740 including a bonus, how many jobs does he complete in that week?
Can you represent this problem in terms of variables?
This KS3 Computer Science module introduces data types to your students, explaining:
- Significance of variables and constants in programming
- Different data types
- Static typing vs. dynamic typing
- Sequence of thinking process of a programmer
- Input and output statements in Python programming language
