• Unit 7: Searching and Sorting Algorithms

    In this unit, students will learn to apply searching and sorting algorithms to arrays. Students will also learn how to conduct worst-case and best-case analysis for these algorithms, determine their efficiency, and assign them generalized Big O notations.

    Completing this unit should take approximately 7 hours.
