This project builds an online tool for users to practice tracing sorting algorithms on a virtual set of cards. Sorting algorithms are crucial to computer science. Visualization of such algorithms can aid in cementing the concepts. The purpose of a virtual manipulative is to create a similar effect of a physical manipulative but on a digital platform so that it is more accessible than its physical alternative. This project is motivated by the educational adjustments needed to be made during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic. By building off of a previous Deck of Cards project, an algorithm to check a user’s work is implemented to allow users to receive immediate feedback on their tracing of a sorting algorithm at any point in time.
