Computing

Computing at Bow gives students an understanding of the fundamental principles and concepts of computer hardware , software and programming.

WHAT ARE THE BIG IDEAS IN computing?

Computational Thinking

Data Representation

Programming

Hardware & software

Learning to think like a computer supports students in developing structured solutions to a range of different problem that they will come across.

Learning and applying binary to represent numbers, text, sounds and pictures allows students to understand how computers process binary to a range of different media.

Allows students to put computational thinking into practice, by writing code that creates working programs that solve everyday tasks

Students will gain insight into how computer systems (hardware & software) and networks operate, and will analyse the effects of computer systems and networks on people and society.
