Algorithms everywhere!

In our computing lesson today we explored what an algorithm is. We learnt that they are a set of instructions to help carry out a task. We then thought about if it matters how we order a set of instructions. We instructed each other to dress up and noticed in which ways we did so. They weren’t all the same!

We discovered that sometimes it does matter which order we get dressed in for example tie and shirt. We used paper dolls to practice writing and following our own algorithms to dress the doll.

We then debriefed by ensuring we could order a set of instructions in a very specific order…… crossing the road. A successful lesson on algorithms 💻
