1. Algorithms

This section takes a closer look at pseudocode - one of the techniques used to describe an algorithm. As a reminder, the definition of an algorithm is shown below.


Algorithm - is a list of step-by-step instructions that, when followed, will solve a problem.

There are two main techniques for producing an algorithm. We have discussed the first, flowcharts, in another section. You can find it HERE.

In this section we will cover the other popular method of representing algorithms - Pseudocode. We will cover various parts of how an algorithm is put together. This includes Operators and Variables, Conditionals, and Loops.

This section is intended as an overview, so we will discuss each of the concepts individually in more detail in the Programming section. You can find those more detailed sections here:
