Unit 1: Introduction to Algorithms
This unit introduces what algorithms are and discusses their importance with the role that algorithms play compared to other technologies used in computers. We look into description of algorithms using pseudo-code and we use pseudo-code for algorithmic analysis. We will go through an introduction of algorithms using examples of sorting algorithms while discussing the importance of algorithm analysis in that context.
Completing this unit should take you approximately 5 hours.
