Project GUTS

Project GUTS– Growing Up Thinking Scientifically — is a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) program for middle school students based in Santa Fe, New Mexico and serving districts nationally. Project GUTS offers a middle school “Computer Science in Science” program consisting of four instructional modules and professional development for the introduction of computer science concepts into science classrooms within the context of modeling and simulation. The goal of the program is to situate computer science practices and concepts within the context of life, physical, and earth sciences, and to prepare students to pursue formal, year-long courses in computer science during high school. The “Computer Science in Science” curriculum was built upon a crosswalk identifying areas of overlap between the NGSS and Computer Science Teachers Association K-12 Computer Science Standards.

Dictionary of Algorithms and Data Structures

Dictionary of algorithms, algorithmic techniques, data structures, archetypal problems, and related definitions. Algorithms include common functions, such as Ackermann’s function. Problems include traveling salesman and Byzantine generals. Some entries have links to implementations and more information. Index pages list entries by area and by type. The two-level index has a total download 1/20 as big as this page. Currently we do not include algorithms particular to business data processing, communications, operating systems or distributed algorithms, programming languages, AI, graphics, or numerical analysis: it is tough enough covering “”general”” algorithms and data structures. If you have suggestions, corrections, or comments, please get in touch with Paul Black. Some terms with a leading variable, such as n-way, m-dimensional, or p-branching, are under k-.
