Course content
The course presents the basic problems in informatics. Students meet various problems of searching, sorting and data structures handling, which are suitable for teaching the elements of algorithms and programming. The problems can be solved by means of various algorithms, on which basic methods of algoritmization are demonstrated. Implementation of the algorithms and their comparison with respect to efficiency and suitability is also discussed. <ol> <li> Principles of problem solving at grammar schools. <li> Searching algorithms. <li> Sorting algorithms. <li> Basic data structures. <li> Presentation of selected problem. </ol>
