Searching and sorting algorithms are widely used by developers to search data in an easier manner. Sorting algorithms arrange the data in a particular order. Searching algorithms are used to search for data in a list. Binary search is used for searching files in external memory in hard disks.
This KS3 Computer Science module introduces binary search to your students, explaining:
- The binary search algorithm
- How an element is searched for in a list using a binary search algorithm
- Pseudocode for a binary search algorithm
