​​Introduction to algorithms

​To program a computer, certain sets of logical instructions need to be provided. Sets of logical instructions for a computer can be designed only when the programmer thinks in the same way that a computer processes the instructions. The set of logical instructions used to program a computer is called algorithm.
An algorithm is generally written using pseudocode or flowcharts. Pseudocode is a readable description of what a computer program will do, and flowchart is the graphical representation of pseudocode

This ​A Level Computer Science module introduces ​​​introduction to algorithms to your students, explaining:

  • ​​Steps involved in solving a problem
  • Algorithm design
  • Understanding & Interpreting an algorithm
  • Applications
