Presentation Transcript

  1. A Level Computing – Mr Sabbagh • Lesson Objectives • Understand COMP3 and COMP4 Timeline • Introduction to COMP4 • Finding a “Customer/Sponsor” to sponsor your project • Introduction to Event Driven and OOP

  2. Learning outcomes • I can explain the structure of the A2 course • I understand the commitment needed for COMP4 • I can explain AQA’s requirement for Independent Development • I can program simple event driven OOP programs

  3. The Course Consists Of Two AQA Modules • Comp3– Exam – Theory – May/June 2013 • Two and Half hour exam • Theory starts today!! • Comp4– Coursework – April 2013 • a 400 TO 600 Page Report ! • Coursework starts today!!

  4. COMP4 – Coursework – April 2011 COMP4 is very different from COMP1, 2 and 3, and in fact most other A levels. You are independent developers. My role is not to teach but to tutor and guide, what does this mean ?? If I have to give you any extra help over the above I have to declare it, at which point the marks automatically drop, the severity is dependant on what AQA feel about the help you were given!!

  5. The 4 big differences between AS and A2 • Independent Problem Solving • Much more theory introduced • Massive amount of coursework • Long and hard exam

  6. COMP4 IS BASED ON Phases of Developing a SySetm

  7. Phases of Developing a System Interviews July 12 Start of July 2012 Hand In Sep 2012 ! Hand End October 2012 By Nov 2012 Dec 2012 – Jan 2012 Feb 2013

  8. Summer Task - Analysis • You need to FIND / CHOSE and Interview your Sponsor before the term ends! • I have to authorise your choice of Sponsor before you interview them, I need to Assess and set the level of complexity for which most of your marks will depend on! • Write your analysis by the end of summer break, in other words, hand in on the first day back!!

  9. On M Drive, in the usual place: M:\ICT\A Level Computing\Comp4\Documentation\ • All critical documents will be placed here • COMP4_Specifcation.pdf • Project Complexity Recomendations.pdf • Analysis Help Sheet.doc • Also in : ictsabbagh.wordpress.com Where to find documentation

  10. AQA_Computing_Course_Specifcation.pdf • Project Complexity Recomendations.pdf • Analysis Help Sheet.doc Three critical documentsLet us investigate the three critical documents you will be using for COMP4

  11. We will need to go through much of Comp3 theory very quickly in the next 5 weeks to enable you carry out your Analysis task during the summer. You will have to do a considerable amount of reading and VB practice outside of lesson time this term Most of Comp3 is needed in Comp4

  12. Learning tools and simulators for Colleges and Primary Schools, eg History Revision Game, Geography Simulator, Physics Light and Sound Simulator Portable devices like iPhone, iPad, iTouch, Personal Productivity, Android Tablets, Lab test Equipment Business systems like stock control, HR, sales management, Paper Distribution, School / Club Enrolment, Call Centre Management, Waste Management System Personal productivity like Stock Shares Tracking, Note Taking, Other Interests : Scouts Club System, Archery Club System, Tennis Club system Examples of projects – Focus on Complexity

  13. Parents and Relatives, their businesses and clubs Friends of the family, their businesses and clubs Saturday/ Summer Jobs businesses Clubs, societies, special interests Last option – A Collingwood teacher !! – AQA don’t like this one, and it cannot be me or Mr P Examples of projects – Finding a Sponsor

  14. Parents and Relatives, their businesses and clubs Friends of the family, their businesses and clubs Saturday/ Summer Jobs businesses Clubs, societies, special interests Last option – A Collingwood teacher !! – AQA don’t like this one, and it cannot be me or Mr P Finding a Sponsor – You have two weeks !!

  15. Research and produce slides/report describing: • Imperative v. Declarative Languages • Functional and Logic Programming • Event Driven Programming • OOP – Object Oriented Programming • Describe which of the above Programming Paradigm do the following languages fit: Basic, VB.Net Console, VB.Net Forms, JAVA, COBOL, Pascal, C++/C#, Prolog, Python, PHP • Read the Project Complexity Recomendations.pdf document • Find a suitable project to do by 24th June, Email me your thoughts immediately, we do not have much time! Home work for tomorrow !!!

  16. Let us look at some console code we did earlier in the year, the simple calculator How do we convert this in to a Forms based Event Driven and OOP application, instead of the Imperative Console based one we did in COMP1 Copy to your user area: M:\ICT\A Level Computing\Comp4\VB examples\2012-2013\C_Simple_Calc_2012 Introduction to OOP

  17. A Level Computing – Mr Sabbagh • Lesson Objectives • Understand COMP3 and COMP4 Timeline • Introduction to COMP4 • Finding a “Customer/Sponsor” to sponsor your project • Introduction to Event Driven and OOP

  18. Review Learning outcomes • I can explain the structure of the A2 course • I understand the commitment needed for COMP4 • I can explain AQA’s requirement for Independent Development • I can program simple event driven OOP programs
