Preview - Conservation Of Mechanical Energy During Free Fall

Introduction to Computational Thinking

In this video, researchers at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Pune talk about how they use computational tools and methods in their work.

Contemporary scientists and mathematicians use such computational tools and methods to understand natural phenomena, solve problems and design solutions. The thinking required for this is called Computational Thinking.

In this lesson using a computational model, we will learn about computational thinking, and motion and conservation of mechanical energy of an object during free fall.


Please answer the questions below.

Based on what you saw in the video, explain why science students need to develop computational thinking. 


These notes will appear on every page in this lesson so feel free to put anything here you'd like to keep track of.
