  • use a range of yes/no questions to separate different items.
  • understand what is meant by a binary tree.
  • design a binary tree to sort pictures of children.
  • understand that questions are limited to ‘yes’ and ‘no’ in a binary tree.
  • understand that the user cannot use 2Question to find out answers to more complicated questions.
  • match 2Simple item pictures to names using a binary tree.
  • understand what is meant by a database.
  • use a database to answer simple and more complex search questions.
