What is computational thinking?
Computational thinking is a problem-solving process that includes (but is not limited to)
the following characteristics:
• Formulating problems in a way that enables us to use a computer and other tools to help solve them.
• Logically organizing and analyzing data
• Representing data through abstractions such as models and simulations
• Automating solutions through algorithmic thinking (a series of ordered steps)
• Identifying, analyzing, and implementing possible solutions with the goal of achieving the most
efficient and effective combination of steps and resources
• Generalizing and transferring this problem solving process to a wide variety of problems
