How Computers Work: Demystifying Computation

Marc Scott, Raspberry Pi Foundation

Understand computation, the basis of every computer system

On this course, you’ll gain an understanding of how computers work at a fundamental level.

You’ll explore system architecture, along with how computers use binary and logic. Once you’ve examined the von Neumann model of computer architecture and the Fetch-Execute cycle, you’ll learn to build a range of simple circuits for maths, and then simulate various logic gates.

Ultimately you’ll complete the course with an understanding of the processes that underpin every modern computer - from supercomputers to smartphones, and everything in between.

This course would suit teachers of KS3 and GCSE Computer Science - plus educators from other countries that teach at an equivalent level.
