Computational Thinking (MIT Press)
Monday, 03 June 2019

Part of the Essential Knowledge series, this book explores the concept of computational thinking (CT), as being more than a set of concepts for programming. Authors Peter J. Denning and Matti Tedre show how it is a way of thinking that is honed through practice: the mental skills for designing computations to do jobs for us, and for explaining and interpreting the world as a complex of information processes.

<ASIN:0262536560>

The authors identify six dimensions of today's highly developed CT―methods, machines, computing education, software engineering, computational science, and design―and cover each in a chapter.
