The subject of algorithms is a core component of Computer Science for undergraduate students. Many of innovative teaching methods have been proposed in the literature and practiced in classrooms aiming to help students learn the subject effectively. This paper reports on our experience in teaching advanced data structures and classic computer science algorithms for year 2 students. For three consecutive years, we practiced a different teaching approach each year. The details of each approach are provided and discussed. By comparing students' learning performance, we found that teaching undergraduate algorithms with case studies and quizzes in interactive tutorials is relatively more beneficial for effective teaching and learning. We conclude the paper with a short summary and future work.
