Welcome to AS/A2 Computing Level 3
This course is designed to allow students the opportunity to develop their understanding of problem solving using the principles of computing.
This course develops student’s capacity for critical thinking. They will develop an understanding of the range of applications of computers and the effects of their use. Students will form an understanding of the organisation of computer systems including software, data, hardware, communications and people.
It will be necessary to acquire the skills, including computer programming, to apply this understanding to developing computer-based solutions to problems.
In this development they will be shown systems analysis and design, methods of problem formulation and planning of solutions using computers, and systematic methods of development, testing, implementation and documentation.
