Toothbrushing Algorithm

Programmers put pieces of code together in an algorithm. An algorithm is a sequence of instructions or a set of rules that are followed to complete a task. This task can be anything, so long as you can give clear instructions for it.

Cut out the pieces of code and put them in the correct order. Then make your own tooth brushing algorithm on the right. You can use writing, drawing or flowcharts to make your algorithm.

Compare your algorithm with a friend’s. How many different ways can you think of making an algorithm?
