Congratulations on completing the course.

After completing this course we hope you have a better understanding of what computational thinking is and how it can apply to all disciplines. Applying the process of computational thinking provides students with a hands-on opportunity to explore and research a topic. To recap, the steps of computational thinking are:

  • Decomposition: Breaking down data, processes, or problems into smaller, manageable parts

  • Pattern Recognition: Observing patterns, trends, and regularities in data

  • Abstraction: Identifying the general principles that generate patterns

  • Algorithm Design: Developing the step by step instructions for solving this and similar problems. Here are some additional resources to continue learning about computational thinking and how you can integrate it into your curriculum.
