Practice 5 – Using Mathematics and Computational Thinking

Science and Engineering Practice 5:

Using Mathematics and Computational Thinking

Paul Andersen explains how mathematics and computational thinking can be used by scientists to represent variables and by engineers to improve design. He starts by explaining how mathematics is at the root of all sciences. He then defines computational thinking and gives you a specific example of computational modeling. He finishes the video with a teaching progression for this practice.
