Selection sort

Sorting algorithms arrange the data in a particular order. Searching algorithms are used to search for data in a list. Selection sort is an algorithm used to order a list in the correct order by finding the smallest element in the list and swapping it with the item in first position. Then, the next smallest element is swapped with the element in position 2 and so on.

This KS3 Computer Science module introduces selection sort to your students, explaining:

  • Selection sort algorithm
  • How is a list sorted using a selection sort algorithm?
  • Pseudocode for selection sort algorithm
  • Analysing selection sort algorithm
