As society continues to progress in technology, an algorithms class is needed for younger generations now more than ever. Algorithms are seen in almost every part of students' everyday lives. Students have grown up using various technologies, ranging from internet platforms to iPhones. Whether a student is googling an answer to a question or scrolling through social media, algorithms are controlling the information that a student receives. High school students need to be educated on algorithms at an early age so that they can better understand how they play a role in their lives. We have suggested that a textbook be designed and taught around to fill the gap in knowledge we are experiencing as a society from the ground up.
