So what is Computational Thinking?

Although it sounds like it, we don’t want you to think like a computer. It’s really set of ways to think that help you solve problems in a systematic and logical way. More importantly, they are methods that can be ‘abstracted’ and applied to more than one problem.

For example, knowing how to use flour, water and yeast to make dough means you can make breads, pizzas, pasta, cakes.

Computational Thinking will also help you to describe a solution that can be easily translated into a computer program. i.e. Programming

But the real value here extends beyond just programming as they are ways to think about solving problems. Ways that will serve you well solving real-world problems such as: finding the fastest route somewhere, finding a different route if there’s an unforeseen problem, ordering large groups of information, building things, etc

**Common types of Computational Thinking are:**

**Problem Decomposition****Pattern Recognition****Abstraction****Algorithms**
