The aim of this book is to provide an accessible text for students, covering each of the elements in the OCR GCSE (9-1) Computer Science specification J276. It will be invaluable both as a course text and in revision for students nearing the end of the course. It is divided into eight sections, each broken down into manageable chapters of roughly one lesson. Sections 5 and 6 of the textbook cover algorithms and programming concepts with a theoretical approach to provide students with experience of writing, tracing and debugging pseudocode solutions without the aid of a computer. These sections would complement practical programming experience. Each of the eight sections cover one of the major topics in this course, and each subtopic contains sample examination questions from past papers, which can be set as homework.

Flirrend, fesselnd, intensiv Nach dem Ende der Schulzeit trifft sich Petes alte Clique, um ein letztes Mal gemeinsam zu feiern, bevor alle getrennte Wege gehen. Von Anfang an ist klar, dass dieser heiße Sommerabend übel enden wird. Und tatsächlich gibt es am Ende zwei Vermisste: Raymond, Petes ängstlicher Freund, der nie so richtig dazugehörte, und Stella, eine frühere Klassenkameradin. Als wenig später Stellas Leiche nackt im Fluss gefunden wird, fällt der Verdacht auf den abwesenden Raymond. Und auch Pete selbst, der auf eigene Faust ermittelt, gerät ins Visier der Polizei...Auf der Shortlist der Carnegie Medal 2009

Second Edition - Programming This is a textbook for computer science for secondary school students. It provides complete and comprehensive coverage of the Edexcel GCSE Computer Science specification for first examination in 2018. There are 30 chapters divided into 8 sections with over 100 questions and exercises to test your knowledge and understanding. Now it can be used as a single textbook covering both the theory and the practical (programming) sides of computer science. Practical Problem Solving - Programming There are now many practical, problem-solving, exercises to be implemented in Python. These range from quick coding challenges to problems that span several chapters. Students who complete a selection of these exercises will acquire all the necessary skills and knowledge to approach the "practical controlled assessment" (NEA) with confidence. At the very end of the book there remains a step-by-step "solution" to a large, analytical problem, which follows exactly the instructions in the Edexcel specification. The principles of Abstraction based on Encapsulation, Generalisation & Modularisation are stressed wherever relevant, not just in section 2 on Computational Thinking. Other Changes in the Second Edition: The students who sit the Edexcel exam in June 2017 will be the last group of the "old" specification, so some "editing" was required. The short section on databases has been edited to clarify and simplify some key points and the pages on SQL have been removed. "Readability" has been improved by moving some work, such as binary floating-point numbers and the implementation of some algorithms in Python, to an extended appendix. The clarity of many diagrams has been improved. Edexcel: The textbook remains primarily orientated to the specification for Edexcel GCSE Computer Science - first exam in June 2018. Nonetheless it would also be an excellent book for other exam boards, such as OCR and AQA, particularly if the chosen programming language were Python. (Of course the reader would need to carefully read their specification.)
August ist anders. Dennoch wünscht er sich, wie alle Jungen in seinem Alter, kein Außenseiter zu sein. Weil er seit seiner Geburt so oft am Gesicht operiert werden musste, ist er noch nie auf eine richtige Schule gegangen. Aber jetzt soll er in die fünfte Klasse kommen. Er weiß, dass die meisten Kinder nicht absichtlich gemein zu ihm sind. Am liebsten würde er gar nicht auffallen. Doch nicht aufzufallen ist nicht leicht, wenn man so viel Mut und Kraft besitzt, so witzig, klug und großzügig ist - wie August.
