Find the Pokémon: The Importance of Algorithms
From Robert Brown on April 8th, 2020
In this video, we learn about the importance of algorithms and choosing the right algorithm for a given task by playing a "Find the Pokémon Game." Along the way we meet Bill and Gina, school kids who play along with us. We discover two different algorithms for finding a hidden Pokémon and learn when to choose one over the other. This video can be played online or downloaded. 18 minutes, closed-captioned.

The game sheets have color in the PDF files, but can be printed black and white with no loss of learning or fun.
