Discuss: Algorithms in your life

We've given you a little intro to algorithms, and a few examples. Now before we go further, we want to hear what algorithms you can think of.
Leave a comment below answering one or more of these questions, and check out what other students wrote:
  • What algorithms do you use in every day life? Do you think you could write a program to make them more efficient?
  • What algorithms do you think are used by your favorite games and apps?
  • Have you ever made an algorithm for a program? What did it do? Was it correct and efficient?
Please use the "Tips/Thanks" tab for your answers, not the "Questions" tab. We look forward to your thoughts!
