​Binary search

​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
