Candidates should be able to:

- understand algorithms (written in pseudocode or as flow diagrams), explain what they do, and correct or complete them
- produce algorithms in pseudocode or flow diagrams to solve problems.

What is an algorithm and how can algorithms be represented?

An computer algorithm is a sequence of statements (instructions) that can be executed (carried out) by a computer to perform a particular task.

**Pseudocode** and **flow diagrams** are two ways to represent algorithms.
