# Basic algorithm structure in a fun online IT learning game.

"Fun Algorithm Diagram" is a free online knowledge level game, about the structure and the indicating shapes
of a simple algorithm. Drag and drop the forms in the correct place. A small Computer Science Class Game for desktop computers, laptops and tablets, which may be played in the web browser. The IT Knowledge Board
include 4 shape pictures to play with. Part of the Interactive Computer Tools educational games.

This fun education class may answer some of the following questions:
• What is algorithm?
• How the different stages in algorithm are indicated?
• What the algorithm shapes indicates?

## How to play Fun Algorithm Diagram.

There are 4 main shapes, which are used in algorithms on the top of the screen. Roll over them to see what they indicates. In the middle, there is a naked algorithm diagram, which need to be dressed with the appropriate form. Drag and drop the shapes in the correct place. Shape use is unlimited. There is a small counter to the bottom right. It is used only for evaluation in fun classes and will not affect the knowledge level achievement.

Knowledge Achievements:
Know the basic structure of an algorithm.
Winning the game rewards +1 Knowledge Level.
The download version(bottom of the page) include an executable file for Windows OS with local levels only.
Here is a gameplay movie on YouTube.

### Class subject: Algorithms.

 In a common language, algorithm is just like an action plan. We humans also live in a kind of algorithm, going to work or school every day, eat at exact hour, make decisions to go here or there and so on. This all is a kind of algorithm. If we put it in the common block scheme structure consist of 4 basic shapes, the oval is the beginning and the end of what we will do after dinner. The diamond is where we have decisions to make. The parallelogram is the outcome of the decision. And the block is the event that need a decision. In reality, most of this we make unconsciously, but the computer have no consciousness... yet.
