Theoretical computers for KS3 computing teachers - Fun With Finite State Machines in 2019
Computing At School
Monday Dec 9, 2019 from 1:00PM to 5:00PM
Topics and activities included: state diagrams, abstraction for programming and understanding the Turing machine.
In this Unit, through a number of classroom activities, we introduce some theoretical models of computation that were developed by early computer scientists to try to formalise the notion of an algorithm. This goes right to the heart of Computer Science, encouraging learners to reason about what it means to compute something.
