Computer Science - Year 10

Hi all,

 

After your work on 1.1 Memory it is now time to proceed with 1.3 Storage (see plan below). Firstly, please email me your ‘Learning Grid’ so I can check your work on this topic and provide you with feedback then to assess what you have learned make sure you answer all the questions on ‘Memory’ on Smart Revise. If you’ve not got yourself registered on this website yet follow these instructions (this is a paid for subscription):

 

 

  1. Please can you go to 'https://www.smartrevise.online/'

  2. Sign-up as a student.

  3. Receive email - click on link to confirm account.

  4. Email me for a voucher code!

I have 25 vouchers and there are 29 of you!!

 

  1. Storage - Objectives

 

What should the learners be confident/able to do at the end of the session?

 

  1. Understand the need for secondary storage

  2. Understand the different types of storage device

  3. Understand the different characteristics of different types of storage

  4. Be able to recommend a storage device for a situation

  5. Estimate data capacity requirements for different file types

 

Tasks

  1. Open the two files ‘learning grid’ (Word) and  GCSE Computer Science Revision Guide (pdf, password: zz2ghc4). Originals attached.

    • The GCSE Computer Science Revision Guide pdf file is a great starting point for all research as its notes on the entire course.

    •  The learning grid covers, again, the whole course. You may have a copy of this in your 'My Documents' which may have some sections already completed - use this if you can access it. Otherwise use the one attached during lock down then you can send to your school email for uploading when normality returns.

  2.  To achieve the objectives for 1.3 Storage use the revision guide to help you answer all the questions on this topic in the 'learning grid'.

  3.  I know it's tempting to copy and paste, however I would encourage you to edit your answers as the 'learning grid' is potentially a great revision resource if the information is short and concise!

I will check my emails everyday so don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions and I will update the 'online learning' section of Computer Science to reflect the weekly task.

 

Once you’ve answered all the questions on ‘Storage’ in your ‘Learning Grid’ please email it to me so I can check it and feedback to you.

I will re-teach everything from the end of Spring 1 (end of January) when we meet again!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The two columns represent our different lessons, as we sometimes alternated topics during a given week. So at this point we will proceed with '1.2 Memory'.

 

Objectives 

1. List the two main forms of memory.

2. Discuss the need for ROM and RAM

3. Explain the difference between ROM and RAM

4. Discuss the impact of the amount of RAM on performance

5. Explain what virtual memory is

6. Explain the advantages and disadvantages of virtual memory

7. Understand what flash memory is

 

Tasks

  1. Save the two attached files

  2. The revision file is a great starting point for all research as its notes on the entire course.

  3.  The learning grid covers, again, the whole course. You may have a copy of this in your 'My Documents' which may have some sections already completed - use this if you can access it. Otherwise use the one attached during lock down then you can send to your school email for uploading when normality returns.
