Lightest and Heaviest

Almost any list that comes out of a computer is sorted into some sort of order, and there are many more sorted lists inside computers that the user doesn't see. Many clever algorithms have been devised for putting values into order efficiently.

In this activity students compare different algorithms to sort weights in order.
