Introduction to Databases

In this unit pupils learn to collect and store information involving more than two variables. They will use a database to answer simple questions by sorting and finding the top or bottom and searching in a single field. They will be introduced to files, records and fields by exploring and comparing computer-based data and paper-based information. They will use a computer database, add to it, carry out simple searches and produce bar charts. Pupils will apply what they have learnt in this unit when using ICT to handle and present information in geography, science, design and technology, and history.
