Get ready for the new computing curriculum. Find new computing challenges to boost your programming skills or spice up your teaching of computer science.

Did you know? The Fibonacci Sequence is the series of numbers: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55 … where the next number is found by adding up the two numbers just before it. The first…

LMC simulators are based on the Little Man Computer (LMC) model of a computer, created by Dr. Stuart Madnick in 1965. The LMC simulator is generally used to for educational purposes, because it models a simple Von Neumann architecture computer…

A triangular number correspond to the number of dots that would appear in an equilateral triangle when using a basic triangular pattern to build the triangule. The triangular numbers sequence contains all the triangular numbers in order. The first 10…

In this challenge we will create a computer program using LMC (Little Man Computer) that takes two inputs and outputs the larger (max) of the the two inputs. By completing this challenge we will investigate the use of the branching…

In this challenge we will create a computer program using LMC (Little Man Computer) that takes a number as an input (e.g. 5) and outputs a countdown from this value. (e.g: 5.4.3.2.1.0). By completing this challenge we will investigate the…

By completing this set of 12 mini challenges you will write programs using Little Man Computer using all the instructions of the LMC instruction set (See below). You will start with basic Input / Process / Output challenges based on…

In Mathematics, the factorial of n is denoted by n! and calculated by the product of integer numbers from 1 to n. For instance: In this challenge you will write a program using Little Man Computer to ask the user…

Write an LMC program to let the user enter two numbers, num1 and num2. The program should output the results of multiplying these two numbers: num1 x num2. LMC Simulators Online LMC Simulator Alternative LMC Simulator Solution While checking the…

Write an LMC program to let the user enter a number n. The program should calculate the output n + (n-1) + (n-2) + … + 3 + 2 + 1. For instance if the user enters the value 5.…

Write an LMC program to let the user enter a PIN code to deactivate a burglar alarm. The program should let the user have up to 3 attempts to enter the correct PIN code before starting the alarm. The correct…
