### Isaac Computer Science Teacher CPD (Newcastle) #2

A free CPD workshop for A level teachers

Date: Tuesday 16th July (9:30-15:30)

This is a free teacher training event focused on Boolean logic. It is part of the national Isaac Computer Science programme for A-level teachers and students, and will be delivered by Newcastle University.

The training is for classroom teachers who already teach Computer Science at AS/A level, or who want to improve their skills in order to start teaching A level Computer Science.

A free sandwich lunch will be provided.

You can work on our cluster machines and bring a USB stick to take away your work, or bring your own laptop.

Outcomes:
• Construct truth tables for the logic gates NOT, AND, OR, XOR, NAND, NOR
• Draw logic gate diagrams using NOT, AND, OR, XOR, NAND, NOR
• Complete a truth table for a given logic gate circuit
• Write a Boolean expression for a given logic gate circuit
• Draw an equivalent logic gate circuit for a given Boolean expression
• Trace the logic of the circuits for a half adder and full adder
• Construct the circuit for a half adder
• Be familiar with the use of the D-type flip-flop as a memory unit
• Use laws to manipulate and simplify Boolean expressions: De Morgan’s laws, distribution, association, commutation, double negation
• Use a Karnaugh map to simplify a Boolean expression
