When designing a program it often helps to draw a picture. A flowchart is a type of picture that uses specific shapes to represent different parts of a program.

  • Ovals tell us where the program starts and ends.

  • Arrows or “flow-lines” tell us the logical direction of the program

  • Parallelograms represent  input or output operations.

  • Rectangles represent processes.

  • A diamond (rhombus) represents a decision.
