Algorithms in Learning, Teaching, and Instructional Design. Studies in Systematic Instruction and Training Technical Report 51201.
Gerlach, Vernon S.; And Others
An algorithm is defined here as an unambiguous procedure which will always produce the correct result when applied to any problem of a given class of problems. This paper gives an extended discussion of the definition of an algorithm. It also explores in detail the elements of an algorithm, the representation of algorithms in standard prose, flow charts, coded graphs, linear representation, list form and decision table form. It develops a taxonomy of algorithms and discusses at length the uses of algorithms in instruction and in research and development problems. (JY)
