Computational Thinking (CT) World
An essential 21st-century skill, COMPUTATIONAL THINKING (CT) is a problem-solving process all students must learn.
Integrating CT into mathematics can help students better understand how to express procedures as a series of logical, precise, repeatable steps that deliver an expected result ... and a correct solution.
Computational Thinking is the thinking process employed in understanding a problem and formulating a solution:
1. Breaking down a complex problem into smaller manageable parts
2. Focusing on the important information, ignoring irrelevant detail
3. Recognizing patterns
4. Developing a step-by-step solution to the problem
First in Math’s CT WORLD module strengthens the ability to think logically at several levels and multiple steps ahead. The games boost confidence in dealing with complexity, persistence in working with difficult problems, tolerance for ambiguity and the ability to deal with open-ended problems.
