Become more familiar with maths and logic in computer science
The mathematical aspects of computer science can be difficult to understand and teach. On this course, you will be introduced to maths and logic in computing in an engaging way. Using the concept of an escape room, you will learn activities and games to help improve your knowledge and skills in this subject.
You will build your understanding of a range of topics, including using logic and mathematical operators in programming, and converting numbers to binary. Through practical activities you will become more comfortable with concepts including logical operators, truth tables, and logic gates.
This course is designed for GCSE computer science teachers who want to improve their ability to teach the mathematical aspects of the subject.
