Teaching Faculty Candidate Seminar

Abstract:  Binary trees and more specifically binary search trees, provide efficient solutions to many problems in computer science. This teaching demo will go through what binary trees are and how to write recursive functions to use them efficiently. This demonstration is aimed at students in the 2nd computer science course, EECS 280, after having seen binary search, recursion, and linked data structures (linked lists).
