​​Comparing searching algorithms

​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 ​KS3 Computer Science module introduces ​​​Comparing searching algorithms to your students, explaining:

  • ​Determining the efficiency of an algorithm
  • Time and space measures
  • Comparing sorting algorithms
  • Empirical testing
