Abstract We conducted two experiments designed to examine whether animations of algorithms would help students learn the algorithms more effectively. Across the two studies we used two different algorithms — depth-first search and binomial heaps — and used two different subject populations — students with little or no computer science background and students who were computer science majors — and examined whether animations helped students acquire procedural and conceptual knowledge about the… Expand
