Supporting great computer science teaching through a scenario-based approach to problem solving and computational thinking. This resource is designed to inspire and motivate students by relating and applying their skills to real-world contexts and making learning relevant.

This text provides coverage of the Edexcel specification, and reflects the pedagogical approach and focus of the specification closely, through the use of scenarios to contextualise and apply knowledge to real-world examples.

  • Activities focus on developing and reinforcing computational thinking and problem-solving skills to provide students with a toolkit that can be used to solve a range of problems.
  • A range of relevant, meaningful contextualised activities reinforce core principles and understanding, build key skills to apply knowledge and understanding and bring learning to life by applying knowledge and skills to real-world situations.
  • Hints, tips and activities make connections between topics, and with prior learning, and facilitate progression within KS4 and beyond.
  • Our activities on Java and Python encourage students to investigate within the programming language they are using.
  • Built-in revision and assessment practice opportunities help prepare students for the written exam.
  • Content, layout and activities are accessible to all students, and extension opportunities are provided for those wishing to deepen their understanding and develop more advanced skills.
