Computational Modeling and Simulation for Learning an Automation Concept in Programming Course

Yong Cheon Kim, Dai Young Kwon, and Won Gyu Lee
Abstract—Computational thinking is a fundamental skill for living in the 21st century. The essence of computational thinking is abstraction and automation. Computer science and the concept of automation is affecting various parts our lives. The concept of automation can be improved through the programming activities to design an algorithm, and to implement using a programming language. In this paper, we propose modeling and simulation steps in a programming activity that can learn the concept of automation. And, we are trying to see how modeling and simulation steps can help in the process of modeling practical problems and how they can solve them.

Index Terms—Computational thinking, programming, automation, computational modeling, simulation.
