Team-Maker Algorithm 1.) Begin with a random set of team assignments. 2.) Calculate a heuristic score for each team and sort the teams in ascending order by score. 3.) Starting with the lowest scoring team, attempt to swap one of the members of this team with a member of the class in some other team. 4.) Calculate new heuristic scores for the two teams involved in the swap. If both scores are better than the previous lowest score, keep the swap. Otherwise, undo the swap. 5.) Keep swapping students until no swap results in a score improvement. * 20 full iterations to avoid trap in local maxima.

    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.
