Do you know what type of activities are able to be described using an algorithm?
Choose all the tasks below that can be completed by following an algorithm.
We can follow an algorithm to complete tasks step by step.
This video shows how flow charts can be used to represent algorithms, and also introduces the idea of branching.
Follow the algorithm below:
Start with the number 8.
If it is even, add 7 then double it.
If it is odd, double it then add 7.
A branch is when the next step depends on an answer, or condition.
Follow a mathematical algorithm involving branching and repetition (iteration)
