CMPT 225 An Aside: Ordered versus Sorted Ordered When a collection is ordered, one can iterate through the collection in a specific (not-random) order. Example: An list keeps the order established by the position of the objects (insertion order). A set does not. Sorted A sorted collection means that the order in the collection is determined according to some rule, known as the sort order . A sort order has nothing to do with when an object was added to the collection, or its position in the collection.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
