Computational Thinking (Wikipedia)

*Dictionary*

compute: to determine especially by mathematical means Compute the area of the triangle.; also : to determine or calculate by means of a computer computing pi to over one billion places —Webster

OneLook, Free Dictionary, Wiktionary

*Encyclopedia*

Computationis any type of calculation that follows a well-defined model understood and expressed as, for example, an algorithm. The study of computation is paramount to the discipline of computer science. —Wikipedia

Computation (Encyclopædia Britannica)

Algorithmis a finite sequence of well-defined instructions, typically used to solve a class of specific problems or to perform a computation. Algorithms are used as specifications for performing calculations and data processing. —Wikipedia
