Reaching Efficient Solutions with Computational Thinking
Computational thinking is a structured way to understand and solve the kind of complex problems facing most organizations today. First developed in conjunction with developing computer systems, it can be applied to many situations, both computerized and not. And it can help determine the right types of computer and human actions to apply in order to solve a problem. In this course, you'll learn the characteristics of computational thinking, including problem expression, as well as of its core techniques, such as decompositions and pattern recognition. You'll also learn how abstraction is used in logical problem solving to build algorithms that create and evaluate business solutions.
