A cycle is a process with no beginning or end. Cycles involve steps that move in a predictable pattern. At the end of the cycle, you find that you are back at the beginning.

A flowchart is a way of showing a process from beginning to end along with the results of decision points in the course of the process. Most people create flowcharts by starting at the beginning of the process and listing each step and decision. Sometimes it is helpful to work backwards from the end of the process to be sure to account for all possibilities.
