Textbooks Power Of Computational Thinking, The: Games, Magic And Puzzles To Help You Become A Computational ThinkerAutor Paul Curzon – Hometrainer-tests.de

From the team behind Computer Science for Fun csfn , The Power of Computational Thinking shows that learning to think can be fascinating funYes, and this book shows you howComputational thinking has changed the way we all live, work and play It has changed the way science is done too won wars, created whole new industries and saved lives It is at the heart of computer programming and is a powerful approach to problem solving, with or without computers It is so important that many countries now require that primary school children learn the skillsProfessors Paul Curzon and Peter McOwan of Queen Mary University of London have written a unique and enjoyable introduction They describe the elements of computational thinking such as algorithmic thinking, decomposition, abstraction and pattern matching in an entertaining and accessible way, using magic tricks, games and puzzles, as well as through real and challenging problems that computer scientists work onThis book gives you a head start in learning the skills needed for coding, and will improve your real life problem solving skills It will help you design and evaluate new technologies, as well as understand both your own brain and the digital world in a deeper way

    I ve always been obsessed with thinking smart and tried a lot mental models e.g Charles Munger thinking success thinking haha, think and grow rich like thinking logical thinking mostly deductive and inductive reasoning strategic thinking game theory, war critical thinking creative thinking.My personal conclusion is that computational thinking beats it all by leaps and bounds But, again my personal experience, I could not learn computational thinking through reading, dong puzzles, solving algorithms on paper, even working on complex Excel formulas.NOTHING WORKED for me except writing code in my case Python.The topics in the book are great Famous algorithms to AI chat robots All amazing But I cannot read text about those topics I need code And to be clear, not pseudocode I need real code so I can test what I read Anything else BORES me I CANNOT read it.If you prefer no code, this book is AMAZING If you need code like me , this book is not for you.

    Ein wunderbar inspirierendes Buch, das informatisches Fachwissen in verst ndlicher und sehr bildhafter Sprache vermittelt Mich hat es mitunter f r die schulische Medienbildung sehr inspiriert Fundamentale Ideen der Informatik sind in ihrem stabilen Kern recht einfach aufgebaut und haben ber viele Jahrzehnte Bestand, auch wenn die Generationen von neueren schnelleren technologischen Entwicklungen sich einen rasanten Schlagabtausch liefern Ich hoffe, dass das Buch eine grosse Leserschaft erreicht und dazu anregt die aktuellen bildungspolitischen Stossrichtungen nach Tablets f r Kindergarten und Grundschule sehr kritisch und vorallem vor dem Hintergrund einer entwicklungsphasenabh ngigen Entwicklung zu sehen Die Autoren zeigen sch n, wie sich hochwertige informatische Grundbildung begreifen l sst Ganz ohne Strom und ohne Bildschirm.

    What a fabulous book I m training to teach computer science, and have been following the authors articles on cs4fn.org for the last year In terms of education, they re ahead of their time At the moment, I don t think enough schools appreciate the importance of computational thinking across the curriculum, but in time they will The schools that are switched on to it now will be leading the field in the coming years, and this book is the best starting point I ve come across.

    O exemplos est o muito claros.Acredito entretanto que poderiam situar melhor o leitor leigo em computa o apresentando exemplos do cotidiano, mostrando que este conhecimento necess rio em situa es mais corriqueiras e que muitos j se saem melhor nas tomadas de decis o e planejamento por terem dom nio Deixando perceber que um conhecimento necess rio e que est ao alcance de todos.
