What Is an Algorithm?

Bitesize Coding and Computing

Algorithms are described as something very simple but important. They are explained as instructions that are split into little steps so that a computer can solve a problem or get something done. An example of how to brush your teeth is demonstrated by a cartoon mouse and robot, and the process is broken down into simple steps such as: ‘take the lid off the toothpaste’ and ‘open your mouth’.
