Algorithmics (HESS) was introduced into the VCE curriculum in 2015. The motivation for the creation of the study was to encourage more students to develop the critical thinking skills, structure and concepts to enable them to participate as creators of computational technology and information systems. “Algorithmic thinking is a major component of computational thinking and is seen as being one of the most important computer science topics for developing critical thinking skills” Successful students of the subject are eligible for university credits in Computer Science.
