Description

A small example of sequential search. Presented as a series of slides, with pseudocode. Examples are given for both successful and unsuccessful search.

Evaluation

Not a compelling presentation, especially considering how simple this algorithm is. The variables on the right side are not integrated with the action in the array.

Usage Notes

For detailed instructions on how to install Animal and run Animal AVs, see: http://www.algoanim.info/Animal2/?q=node/290. Once you have installed the Animal .jar file and downloaded/unpacked the .zip file of Animal animations, you are now ready to run Animal. Run the .jar file to start Animal. Then go to the "Open" menu item, and browse to where you put the animal animations you got in the .zip file. Pick this AV from the list. You can then step through the animation, or use "kiosk mode" to have the steps fed to you at a constant pace.
