What Tasks Can Computers Perform?


This illuminating STEM volume explores a wide variety of tasks computers perform, from running video games to controlling the International Space Station to helping students learn to read, write, and do math. Call-outs support state and national standards for close reading and critical thinking, while engaging photographs offer additional information on a topic that will interest teachers and students alike. While students may have limited exposure to what computers do in their own lives, they will be inspired to learn that there is so much more to these machines than they have imagined.
