Puzzles are a great and fun way to develop computational thinking skills. This puzzle book involves a wide range of puzzles that involve aspects of computational thinking. Some are algorithmic puzzles where the aim is to come up with an algorithm that solves the puzzle. Many like Kakuro and Cut Block puzzles are logic puzzles, that are all about logical thinking. To be good at them, though, involves inventing your own rules and algorithms for solving them. Yet others, like code cracking grids involve computing concepts and algorithms in puzzle form.
This puzzle book was made possible by support from Google through its CS4HS programme with additional support from the Department for Education and Mayor of London.
