This lesson is about sorting algorithms and the methods used to sort lists of items. It aims to teach students logical thinking skills and how to divide problems into steps to be solved by a computer. It is recommended that students have knowledge of one programming language. The lesson is approximately 21 minutes long. With the student activities, it may take up to 45 minutes to complete. It is useful to have a set of numbers for students to sort. During the activities, the students will try to find methods for sorting algorithms and then apply this method in order to determine the best sorting method.
