Evaluation and design of algorithms
A problem can be solved in many ways. Choosing the best solution is important in programming. The important requirements for a proper solution: must work correctly and must complete the task in a specific time. The efficiency of algorithms can be compared using time and space requirements. Time requirements: denote the time taken to complete the task. Space requirements: denote the amount of memory required to complete the task.
This A Level Computer Science module introduces evaluation and design of algorithms to your students, explaining:
- Comparing the efficiency of different algorithms for the same problem
- Time and space measures
- Big-O notation for expressing time complexities
