The following 16 topics will be covered through a combination of lecture and hands-on to maximize your learning of the Binary Search Algorithm and Recursion:

**C++ Series Introduction**. This first topic in this C++ algorithm course will introduce you to this video series and explain the topics that will be covered.**Binary Search Algorithm Overview**. This second topic in this C++ algorithm course introduces the binary search algorithm in C++, which is based upon the idea of “divide and conquer”. A large data set can be broken down into manageable sets using this algorithm.**Binary Search Algorithm Implementation in C++**. This third topic in this C++ algorithm course shows you how to implement the binary search function in C++.**Solving the Lower Bounds Challenge with the Binary Search Algorithm in C++**. This fourth topic in this C++ algorithm course demonstrates the power of the binary search algorithm by showing how the lower bounds challenge can be solved.**Solving the Upper Bounds Challenge with the Binary Search Algorithm in C++**. This fifth topic in this C++ algorithm course demonstrates the power of the binary search algorithm by showing how the upper bounds challenge can be solved.**Solving the Square Root Challenge with the Binary Search Algorithm in C++**. This sixth topic in this C++ algorithm course demonstrates the power of the binary search algorithm by showing how the square root challenge can be solved.**Using the Binary Search Algorithm with Rotated Sorted Arrays in C++ Part 1**. This seventh topic in this C++ algorithm course shows how to manipulate rotated sorted arrays using the binary search algorithm.**Using the Binary Search Algorithm with Rotated Sorted Arrays in C++ Part 2**. This eighth topic in this C++ algorithm course continues the discussion on rotated sorted arrays using the binary search algorithm.**Using the Binary Search Algorithm to Find the Pivot Element in an Array with C++**. This ninth topic in this C++ algorithm course shows how to manipulate rotated sorted arrays using the binary search algorithm.**Introducing Recursion**. This tenth topic in this C++ algorithm course introduces the concept of recursion. Also learn what constitutes a recursive algorithm and be able to explain the base case and recursive call.**Generating the nth Fibonacci Number using Recursion**. This 11th topic in this C++ algorithm course shows you how to use recursion in C++ to generate the nth Fibonacci number.**Checking Whether an Array is Sorted using Recursion**. This 12th topic in this C++ algorithm course shows you how to use recursion in C++ to see if an array is sorted or not.**Printing Numbers using Recursion**. This 13th topic in this C++ algorithm course shows you how to use recursion to print numbers in both increasing and decreasing order using C++.**Using the Recursive Approach to Solve the Binary Search Algorithm**. This 14th topic in this C++ algorithm course shows you how to use recursion in C++ to perform a binary search.**Solving the 2048 Challenge using Recursion**. This 15th topic in this C++ algorithm course shows you how to use recursion in C++ to solve the 2048 challenge. The 2048 challenge is when each digit is listed as a string instead of as a number, for example “two zero four eight”.**Bubble Sorting using Recursion**. This 16th topic in this C++ algorithm course shows you how to perform the bubble sort using recursion using C++.
