Tenderfoot Unit 6 : Bits and Chips - Simple Ideas That Make Computers Tick


Thursday May 4, 2017 from 10:00AM to 4:00PM


Hosted by CAS North East (Newcastle University)

This unit covers how the machine works, and how it is built from electronic components that perform a few simple operations. The specific outcomes for teachers from this unit, are to:

  • Become familiar with Boolean logic and machine architecture.
  • Be able to express combinational logic circuits as truth tables.
  • Make connections with exemplar circuits in processors (adders).
  • Investigate exercises exploring / coding bitwise operations.
  • Become familiar with the fetch execute cycle, Von Neumann bottleneck and the potential of parallel processing.

It is part of the CAS Tenderfoot CPD Programme. Primarily aimed at KS3 and above teachers it can also be of interest at KS2.
