## Computational thinking – logic and reasoning

Posted by bhall under General News | Tags: computational thinking, logic and reasoning, sequences |No Comments

Year 5 have been learning about concepts of computational thinking. This is to encourage children to think like a computer, so they can understand how they work and what they need to function effectively.

We have been looking at number sequences, using logic and reasoning to find missing numbers and, most importantly, explain how the sequence was solved.

As an extra challenge, can you find the missing number in this sequence and answer the questions below?

0,1,1,3,5,__,13

– Can you continue the sequence?

– How would you explain this sequence to a computer?

– What is this sequence called?

– Why is it important?
