Before you sit down:
You and your partner will get 8 unique playing cards, and together you are going to use these to come up with a sorting algorithm.
Your algorithm should be written as steps on paper, and must be based on the following two operations on lists only:
Use the cards to help you come up with your sorting algorithm, and try your algorithm out on the cards to see if it works.
Once you have a sorting algorithm, demonstrate it to me or one of the ninjas.
Next think about the number of steps it takes your algorithm to sort a list of n values.
