Chapter 11: Using Computational Thinking and Python in Simple Challenges

In this chapter, we will take a look again at the computational thinking process and apply it to design algorithms that help us solve various scenarios and problems. As we wrap up Section 2, Applying Python and Computational Thinking, of this book, we will combine some of the knowledge about Python capabilities with the computational thinking process to solve these problems.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Defining the problem and Python
  • Decomposing the problem and using Python functionalities
  • Generalizing the problem and planning Python algorithms
  • Designing and testing the algorithm

By the end of this chapter, you will be able to design algorithms ...
