We, as humans with brains, can sort things without thinking too hard. But how do computers go about sorting things?

We will answer this question together by exploring three different sorting algorithms: BOGO sort, insertion sort, and bubble sort. We will evaluate the efficiency of each sorting algorithms with questions like “How many times would you have to go through a list of unsorted things with this method before you can know for sure it is sorted?” and “How could we make that faster?”
