Sequential Searching

  • Definition: examining each element of the list in sequence until it finds the one you’re looking for.

    Source: Reges & Stepp, 2007

  • Example: Example sentence for context: "When searching a 1,000,000-element list for an element at index 675,000, a sequential search would have to examine all 675,000 elements that came before it found the right value."
