Abstract

Algorithms and algorithmic thinking are central to learning about computing. Unfortunately, an algorithm, as a thing itself, can be rather abstract; it can be difficult for students to understand what the algorithm is doing and how the execution of the algorithm leads to the desired end result. Students often need some way of seeing how an algorithm works on a particular problem.
