Principles of Code 5 - Weekly Term Course for Ages 13 - 16

An algorithm is defined as a sequence of steps required to solve a given problem. In the next step of the Code Campus learning journey, we concern ourselves with the analysis of algorithms - a careful, rigorous, hands-on study of how to improve our solutions. What makes one solution better than another? How is that improvement quantified?

As solving a problem almost always involves an imposition of structure upon chaos, our foray into this topic begins with a hard look at sorting algorithms - ways to put data in order. When asked for “the most efficient way” to order a million numbers while on a visit at Google, Barack Obama famously remarked “I think the Bubble sort would be the wrong way to go.” In this, the American president was right - astonishingly, moving from a Bubble sort to a Quicksort reduces the time taken to sort by a factor of tens of thousands.

We will also study how shrewdly structuring data is often a big chunk of problem solving - how does thinking about the internet or the retail economy in terms of networks and graphs allow us to better model the flow of information or trade?

In the previous courses, we learned how to code - in this course, we will learn, quite simply, how to code better.

3. No refund is given if written notice of any cancellation is received by us less than 7 days before the start date of the course.

What is the Missed Classes and Make-Up Policy?

SG Code Campus offers structured and outcome-driven courses to equip our students (aka Code Campers) with the necessary programming proficiencies to progress through our learning roadmap. If a student is unable to attend any day of the course for any reason whatsoever you may, subject to instructor availability, have one replacement class free of charge. Any additional days missed shall be subject to additional charges and instructor availability.

If a student has missed two or more classes, we may require that the student attend make-up classes at your own cost before allowing such student to progress to the next level.
