Modular programming

Programs implement several tasks. Many times similar tasks are repeated. Typing the same code multiple times is time-consuming. Such tasks are written as modules such as functions, procedures or subprograms are written. These can be called multiple times in the main program reducing the time taken.

This KS3 Computer Science module introduces modular programming to your students, explaining:

  • Application of functions (learnt in mathematics) in programming
  • How are functions useful to programmers?
  • What are procedures? How are they different from functions?
  • Recursion
