Year 8 – Lesson 1 – Across time and space

Curriculum KS3 Unit Lesson

Learners discuss familiar examples of representations, some of which date back millennia, to better understand their use and characteristics. This prepares learners for their encounter with binary representations in the context of computing, and places these within a much broader (and more familiar) context.

Learning objectives

  • List examples of representations
  • Recall that representations are used to store, communicate, and process information
  • Provide examples of how different representations are appropriate for different tasks
