Made specifically for Middle-School and High-School students, the AI League (http://www.computationinitiative.org/programs/) is fun approach to learning computational thinking by going on AI Adventures. Check it out and let us know what you think! ]]>

Do you have any way to program robots using Wolfram Alpha?

OK. Now. The left-hand column shows you the ‘mathematical/computational’ domains , moving from most to least abstract (top-to-bottom). The middle-column is listing the ‘physical’ domains. And the right-hand column shows the ‘mental/social domains’.

You can see that in my scheme, the computational and mathematical aren’t seperate – I think there is just a shading -off from most-to-least abstraction, with pure mathematics being the most abstract, and computational thinking being a more concrete (less abstract) version of the math.

I think, with ‘computational thinking’, you are talking about a level of abstraction that is half-way between conventional programming (lowest level of abstraction), and pure math (highest level of abstraction). So perhaps ‘computational thinking’ should be thought as a ‘bridge’ between pure math on the one hand and low-level programming on the other.

Conventional programming languages fit into the bottom-left 3 domains of my scheme (operating systems, programming and data modelling). With ‘computational thinking’,I think you’re moved up a level of abstraction into the realm of ‘knowledge representation’ (deduction, induction and abduction), represented by the 3 domains I’ve called ‘Mathematical Logic’, ‘Probability Theory’ and ‘Concept Learning’.

Hope you take some schedule out of your busy schedule and glance at it, it would encourage me a lot. Thanks.
