Brew making algorithm

You have 10 minutes in which to write down the set of steps required to make a cup of tea.

Think about:

  • What questions and decisions might you have to make?
  • What things might you have to remember in your head?
  • What things might you have to repeat?

Once you have finished writing your algorithm, pass it over to a friend and get them to check it. Can they find any problems with it or any suggestions for improvements?

Keyword : Algorithm

An algorithm is a set of step by step instructions to solve a problem.
