Preview - Simple Harmonic Motion - Simple Pendulum

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.

Scientists and Mathematicians are increasingly using computational tools and methods to understand natural phenomena and solve problems. The thinking required to do so is called computational thinking.

In this lesson using a computational model, we will learn computational thinking and simple harmonic motion of a pendulum.


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.
