Abstract

The Binary Search Tree serves as an important example when teaching
data structures. We explore new approaches to understanding the
implementation of a Binary Search Tree, using concepts from
Object-Oriented Programming and C++. The Binary Search Tree
illustrates how adopting a new approach and a new language can lead to
a new way to thinking about a familiar problem.
