Dean Zeller Due: Thursday, September 13th
CS10051 10 points
Objective The student will create a procedural diagram of a heuristic algorithm using a graphics package.
Activity 1 – Heuristic Algorithm
Textbook: chapter 2
Use a graphics package such as PowerPoint to create a heuristic algorithm design for a common everyday task,
similar to the example demonstrated in class and following the example in activity 1.
There should be at least five (5) procedures, each with 5 to 10 steps.
Use arrows to indicate the procedure call flow.
Use an if or a while statement in your algorithm.
You will be graded on the following criteria:
Accuracy Correctly designing the algorithms for the task
Organization Neatness and readability of the algorithm diagram
Creativity Imagination and originality
Extra credit will be given for the following:
Give the diagram an artistic look using the tools provided in the graphics package.
Create additional procedures within the algorithm.
Exceptional creativity and imagination in diagram style, algorithm content, or level of detail.
