Understanding Maths and Logic in Computer Science for Students

Improve your ability with maths and logic in computing, and use it to build elements of an escape room. Supported by Google.

What will you achieve?

By the end of the course, you'll be able to...

  • Identify the AND, OR, NOT and XOR logical operators, recognise the symbols representing each logic gate, and be able to combine them in logic circuits and statements
  • Develop how to use operators in programming including • equal to • addition • subtraction • multiplication • real division • integer division, including remainders
  • Produce drawings of truth tables and logic circuits and recognise a logic gate/circuit from its truth table
  • Calculate conversion between binary and denary whole numbers (0-255)
  • Explain why hexadecimal is often used in computer science, and convert between binary and hexadecimal & decimal and hexadecimal
