Module Summary

  • Page ID
  • In this module, in unit 1 you learnt about algorithms, its properties and the different ways it can be represented. In unit 2, recursion was introduced where it can be used and the laws that a recurring algorithm must obey; examples accompanied these and explanations were provided where necessary. In the unit 3, data structures and abstract data types were learnt. In the data structures section, different structures were discussed. These included arrays, links, Linked lists, Stacks, Queues, Hashing and Trees. In the abstract data types section, the operations performed on the data structures were discussed. In the final unit, the searching and sorting algorithms together with their examples were learnt. For the searching, the sequential and binary searches were discussed. While for the sorting algorithm, insertion sort, shell sort and quicksort were discussed.
