Learn to analyse problems in computational terms
Use logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors in algorithms and programs.
Use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output.
Design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts.
Create and debug simple programs.
Use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs.
Understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions.
Can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation.
Use two or more programming languages, at least one of which is textual, to solve a variety of computational problems.
