Have you ever tried to think like a computer? Guess what? You probably do it all the time without even knowing! Computational thinking is a problem-solving process that is used in everyday life as well as by computer programs. In this fun activity you’ll apply your computational thinking skills to jigsaw puzzles. In addition to doing a puzzle, you’ll create an algorithm or set of instructions to help someone else solve jigsaw puzzles.
Create a step-by-step algorithm to describe your puzzle-solving strategy.
