•
Develop an algorithm, or stepbystep method of evaluating the equations involved in the
solution.
•
Describe the algorithm in mathematical terms and then implement as a computer program.
•
Carefully review the proposed solution, with thought given to alternative approaches.
4. Implementation of Computational Method:
Once a computational method has been identified, the next step is to carry out the method with a
computer, whether human or silicon.
Some things to consider in this implementation:
•
Assess the computational power needed, as an acceptable implementation may be hand cal
culation with a pocket calculator.
•
If a computer program is required, a variety of programming languages, each with different
properties, are available.
•
A variety of computers, ranging from the most basic home computers to the fastest parallel
supercomputers, are available.
•
The ability to choose the proper combination of programming language and computer, and
