3 Terminator  Starts and ends a process  Only one flow, either departing or entering START STOP 3

4 Process  Contains calculation or process  Can contain a sequence of consecutive operations  Has a single flow entering and a single flow exiting Calculate average Sum = A+B+C Ave = Sum/3 4

5 Decision  Condition whose result causes one of multiple calculations or processes  Stated as question with only YES or NO as answer  One flow entering and two flows exiting Is A > B? Yes No 5

6 Input/Output  Read input or write output  Only one operation, but can have multiple inputs or outputs  One flow entering and one flow exiting Read A,B,C 6

7 Connector  Brings together separate flows that are coming together to perform the same operation  Multiple flows entering, one flow exiting  Note there is no “disconnector” 7

8 Let us try an example 8  We want to build a program to calculate the salary of a finical consultant  We need to read the working hours and hourly rate from the consultant  Calculation: Hours*Pay Rate  Output: the gross pay
