Algorithms for kids
February 15, 2014
I recently gave a talk about algorithms to a 6-th grade class. My slides are below (an English version and a Hebrew version).
What I believe worked very well was going through the execution of the algorithms step-by-step and having the kids take turns at saying in advance, before I switch to the next slide, what the changes they are expecting see are – where the instruction pointer arrow will move, what variables will change their values and what new output will be emitted.
