Computational Thinking for the Modern Problem Solver by David D. Riley,Kenny A. Hunt

By David D. Riley,Kenny A. Hunt

Through examples and analogies, Computational pondering for the trendy challenge Solver introduces computational pondering as a part of an introductory computing path and indicates how desktop technology innovations are appropriate to different fields. It retains the cloth obtainable and appropriate to noncomputer technological know-how majors.



With various colour figures, this classroom-tested ebook specializes in either foundational laptop technological know-how suggestions and engineering issues. It covers abstraction, algorithms, common sense, graph conception, social problems with software program, and numeric modeling in addition to execution keep an eye on, problem-solving options, checking out, and knowledge encoding and organizing. The textual content additionally discusses basic innovations of programming, together with variables and task, sequential execution, choice, repetition, keep an eye on abstraction, facts association, and concurrency. The authors current the algorithms utilizing language-independent notation.
