Students will be given the opportunity to explore Huffman Trees, stepping through the process of compressing data and calculating its effectiveness and a compression method.
Safeguarding reminder:The safety of your child is of the utmost importance. All of our classes are pre-recorded to remove any concerns around live participation. For reruns of our past live classes, students' webcams and microphones were disabled and only the chat history, if participation was requested, is visible.
