How Sorts Work

Sorting things is hard, there’s various different methods involved, some better than others based on the data you’re given and so on.  All of them are involved be it memory, or time.  Some are easy to explain, but overall unless you’re really paying attention to the math at hand, you don’t get it.  This is where the AlgoRythmics YouTube channel comes in.  They use traditional Hungarian folk dancing to visually explain 6 of the most common sorting methods.  It’s very easy to see how the algorithms work.  If it’s not, I think it should be included in introductory classes
