A task that students could complete to understand the development of algorithms would be to create an algorithm as a flow chart on How to brush your teeth. A flow chart example of this activity may be illustrated by
-Pick up toothbrush with right hand.
-Pick up toothpaste with left hand and squeeze small amount of paste onto the brissels of the toothbrush.
– Place toothpaste back on shelf with left hand.
-Put toothbrush in mouth with right hand and brush each tooth for 20 seconds.
