What is an algorithm?

Review Question:

Try answering the follow review question by leaving a comment or answering it in your head. If you want you can even write it down on paper.

Write an algorithm for your morning routine. From the time the alarm clock rings until you leave the house for work or school.

If you're like me and do not have a job try writing an algorithm on how to write a resume.
