Hi, I'm about to teach Bubble/Merge/Insertion sort as per the OCR J276 spec. Bubble sort is relatively straight forward to explain, realise in Pseudocode and program up. Merge sort is fairly straight forward to explain, somewhat more complex to achieve in Pseudocode and even more complex to program up. It really does not feel like a GCSE programming exercise - but what is a GCSE programming exercise these days!? As I understand it, there is no requirement for students to be able to code up these algorithms - or is there? The algorithms section appears alongside programming in the spec - it says "Learners will be introduced to algorithms and programming" I can see the benefits of doing so: if they get it, the NEA should be straight forward. How are people planning to approach this part of the spec? Thanks, Geedle.
