​​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
