Welcome to the Thirteenth of Altitude Foundation’s #MicroChallenges2020
Today we’re searching and sorting data! (It’s more exciting than it might sound – we promise.)
What’s a Micro Challenge?
These challenges are short activities to help you develop, revise or refresh your coding skills, posted every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Micro Challenge #13
This week, our focus is on searching and sorting
One of the most important functions of a computer is being able to sort through data and find the requested information.
In this Python-programmed game, you need to find the number, between 1 and 100, that the computer has selected.
How might you go about finding the number? How many ways can you come up with?
Play through the game several times and consider:
- Which system got you the fastest answer?
- Which works best consistently?
The numbers 1 to 100 represent the dataset that the game is working with. For the most consistently effective search, does the dataset need to be organised in a specific way? Why?
We would love to see what you have created! Please send any pictures, videos, or files of your activities to us – either via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #MicroChallenges2020 or to email@example.com. If you are emailing them to us, please let us know if you are happy for us to share your stuff on our social media platforms (with credit, of course).
