Question description

  1. What is an algorithm? (4 pts) 
  2. Find one on-line example of an algorithm (try to find one that solves any math problem), and repeat (retype and/or copy by taking a screen shot) that algorithm into your homework submittal. [Screen shots on many PC’s are done by pressing Alt-PrintScreen keys simultaneously to copy the screen, then pasting it into a Word doc]. Do not forget to cite your source. The source must be external to the class, i.e. internet resources, and not the class PowerPoints. (4 pts)

  3. Share any observations about what you may have found interesting or useful in examining the cited algorithm, e.g. did you learn a better way to solve that particular problem, or not, and why? (3pts)

  4. State your opinion as to the value of understanding algorithms in solving engineering problems. (4 pts)
