Algorithms, data structures, and analysis of algorithmic complexity for A level

Aims

This session will cover A level content on data structures, algorithms, and algorithmic complexity, including: - Stacks, queues, graphs, and trees - Searching and sorting algorithms - Analysis of algorithms - Big O notation

This event will be followed by a programming CPD event in the spring term, where you will look at different approaches to the implementation of data structures.

Who should attend?

The event is for classroom teachers who either already teach Computer Science at A level or equivalent, or want to improve their skills to start teaching an A level Computer Science qualification in the future.

Equipment required

You can work on our cluster machines and bring a USB stick to take away your work, or you can bring your own laptop.

Logistical information

Attendance is free. A waiting list will be available should the event be oversubscribed.

All attendees must register individually.

A sandwich lunch will be provided

About Isaac Computer Science CPD

Teacher CPD events are designed to help A level Computer Science teachers build their confidence and understanding of the subject. At each event, you’ll explore a computer science concept in depth, and you can easily adapt what you’ll learn for use in the classroom with your students. We’ll also show you how to use the teacher functions on the Isaac Computer Science platform.
