We all are aware of the relevance of examining a task from diverse angles. We also are aware of the potential relevance of learning from one's mistakes. Yet computer science (CS) textbooks and teaching materials fall short in embedding these two notions. In this paper, we present an approach of elaborating divergent thinking in algorithm design, while capitalizing on erroneous solutions. Using a collected set of non-routine algorithmic tasks, we developed and applied a scheme of class… CONTINUE READING
