Summary

This unit begins by looking at computational thinking, including abstraction and decomposition. Practical experience of writing, tracing and modelling algorithms using pseudocode and flowcharts is provided. These skills are subsequently used to interpret and compare relevant searching and sorting algorithms including the merge and insertion sorts. Students will also be given ample practical experience of correcting and completing algorithms (including debugging and testing) in worksheets and homeworks.
