Title Representing and manipulating data in computers
Description
  • Computers are all around us: in cars, kitchen scales, digital cameras, etc. But how do they store the data they hold? This free course, Representing and manipulating data in computers, will help you to understand how the data in a computer represents something in the outside world. You will also explore how ASCII code and Unicode are used to control data. <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/computing-and-ict/computing/representing-and-manipulating-data-computers/content-section-0" /> First published on Tue, 29 Mar 2016 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/computing-and-ict/computing/representing-and-manipulating-data-computers/content-section-0">Representing and manipulating data in computers</a>.

  • <p>Computers are designed to receive, store, manipulate and present data. This course explains how computers do this, with reference to the examples of a PC, kitchen scales and a digital camera. In particular it explores the idea that the data in a computer <i>represents</i> something in the real world.</p><p>This OpenLearn course provides a sample of level 2 study in <span class="oucontent-linkwithtip"><a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/find/computing-and-it?LKCAMPAIGN=ebook_&amp;MEDIA=ou">Computing &amp; IT</a></span></p>
