Make The Lumies

- Ordering -


The world of Coders was once very orderly. Everything worked very smoothly, like in a computer. Only the invasion of the Drakonids caused so much chaos and made even the Coders themselves not know how they should work. The creation of new Coders must take place in the correct order. Adding subsequent elements, from which they are built, must take place according to the instructions. You cannot skip any stage, so this work should be orderly - just like in a computer. Computers could not work if the information enclosed in them was scattered and disorganized. Coders also work like this, which is why it is so important to arrange them in the correct order - from the simplest to the most complex.

Application Instructions

In this part of the planet, its new inhabitants are still being created. Guess how to correctly assemble the Coders so that their next friends can visit the planet. By stomping, change the order of any two Coders so that they are arranged from left to right, according to the number of elements they have - from the simplest to the most complex.

Conversation Inspirations with Children

Talk to the children about known life situations or examples from their immediate environment in which they apply or may encounter the concept mentioned:

  • organizing toys so that they can be found faster: blocks together, puzzles and games on another shelf, dolls and teddy bears in a trunk, crayons in a pencil case;
  • creating groups in kindergarten so that children of the same age can play and learn together;
  • assigning lockers in kindergarten so that each child can store their shoes and jacket in one place;
  • the list of surnames in the school register, words in the spelling dictionary are arranged in alphabetical order from a to z;
  • clothes in the store are arranged according to size, from smallest to largest.

What is the ordering/sorting of information in computer science?

It is the ordering of a data set in terms of selected characteristic features of each element of this set. We use sorting algorithms to organize data, create efficient algorithms (e.g., search), and present information in a way that is more readable to humans.
