Mathematical Modeling and Computational Thinking
Sanford, John F.; Naidu, Jaideep T.
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v10 n2 p159-168 2017
The paper argues that mathematical modeling is the essence of computational thinking. Learning a computer language is a valuable assistance in learning logical thinking but of less assistance when learning problem-solving skills. The paper is third in a series and presents some examples of mathematical modeling using spreadsheets at an advanced level such as high school or early college.
