Algorithms
Learning Objective:
· Understand algorithm
· Learn how to solve problems with the help of algorithm
Introduction:
In the world of computer, you have to solve various problems using the flow chart. Algorithm helps to solve any welldefined computational problem through systematic process. You can also use this method in your daily life to solve even the complex problem and can get some definite answer. You must learn how to organize every step to simplify any computational issue to implement that program. Flowchart is the next step of any algorithm that that represent the whole process through diagram.
Activity 1:
Jack has an assignment to make a Sequence Statement Algorithm to calculate the volume of a square. She is confused as how to do it. Help Jack and draw a suitable diagram for her.
Activity: Help Jack by drawing a sequence diagram
Learning Objective: To understand the right methodology to make a sequence statement
Introduction: Sequence Statement is a computational algorithm that is written systematically with an initial input as “Start” and final output as “Stop”
Main Activity: To help Jack by making a statement on behalf of her. Students can complete the activity on copy.
Plenary Extension: To help students to have a broad idea of sequence statement via algorithm
Resource Required: Pen or Pencil
Attached file: Algorithms
Activity 2:
Jim is a smart boy but don’t know the traffic rules and meaning of traffic light. Help her to understand the meaning of the two important traffic light color, viz: Green, and Red
Activity: Help Jim by drawing a selective diagram
Learning Objective: To understand the right methodology to make a selective statement
Introduction: Selective Statement is a computational algorithm that is written systematically with an initial input as “Start” and final output as “Stop”, but based on the conditions that leads to the sequence
Main Activity: Helping Jim by making a statement on behalf of him. Students can complete the activity on copy.

Algorithm is a simple yet effective method to articulate any function into a finite list of instructions from starting to end stepbystep. It helps to compute a set of instructions that starts from an initial input and ends to an output. Algorithms: Introduction, Definition.Types of algorithms.Activities and MCQ.
