Merge sort is my favorite

Making a note of this so I don’t lose it before the next time I teach Data Structures – a couple of videos not just visualizing but also translating the intermediate states of sorting algorithms into audio, it appears by playing a note corresponding to the magnitude of each data item in the collection being touched as the sort proceeds. We use visualizations like this in class already, but the audio adds a fun wrinkle.
