Standard algorithms for searching and sorting
Standard logic is used in software solutions. The majority are obvious concepts, but the ones listed below are required knowledge. These theories are also readily adaptable to any programming language. Click on some specific searches and sorts to see some further details on Google Docs.
We will examine standard algorithms for each of the following:
You viewed the above video last year, but it serves as a great reminder and introduction for the more advanced features of algorithms covered in this topic.
A reminder that the course specifications detail a series of search and sort algorithms that you should learn and know well. Below are a series of activities based on each:
