They typically come in the form of While loops, For Loops or conditional statements such as switch or if/else statements. A simple algorithm can be: If the sun in up, open the curtains.

If you like this post be sure to keep your eyes peeled, we want to bring you more technical knowledge each week.

If you’d like to ask your own programming, math or robotics questions post a comment and we will try to answer it in a future post.
