How do these Computer programmer use their critical thinking skills? Give specific examples of how critical thinking might be used in the daily life of each Computer programmer
Programming a computer to perform complex operations is probably more demanding of critical thinking skills than almost any other activity. [ · First, before one can write a computer program to do something, one must understand what the program is supposed to accomplish. Since the intended objectives of a software system are described in English (at best), significant critical thinking
skills are required simply to understand what is to be done. Often the objectives of a software system are not described in any language. Software developers are required to interview the intended users of the system to try to determine what really is needed. This is often an extraordinarily difficult job, which requires quite sophisticated critical thinking skills. · Second, students must determine, in precise detail, how the objectives determined by the previous step may be accomplished. · Finally, students must express the required steps as a computer program. A computer program is a text in an unforgiving language, a programming language. Programming languages are interpreted more formally and literally than virtually any other language in existence. Syntax and semantics are rigidly defined. Everything must be correct for the program to operate properly. ]

when make a judgment, do you engaged in critical thinking.
Weegy: The meaning of critical thinking: Critical thinking clarifies goals, examines assumptions, discerns hidden values, evaluates evidence, accomplishes actions, [ and assesses conclusions. "Critical" as used in the expression "critical thinking" connotes the importance or centrality of the thinking to an issue, question or problem of concern. "Critical" in this context does not mean "disapproval" or "negative." There are many positive and useful uses of critical thinking, for example formulating a workable solution to a complex personal problem, deliberating as a group about what course of action to take, or analyzing the assumptions and the quality of the methods used in scientifically arriving at a reasonable level of confidence about a given hypothesis. Using strong critical thinking we might evaluate an argument, for example, as worthy of acceptance because it is valid and based on true premises. Upon reflection, a speaker may be evaluated as a credible source of knowledge on a given topic. Critical thinking can occur whenever one judges, decides, or solves a problem; in general, whenever one must figure out what to believe or what to do, and do so in a reasonable and reflective way. Reading, writing, speaking, and listening can all be done critically or uncritically. Critical thinking is crucial to becoming a close reader and a substantive writer. Expressed in most general terms, critical thinking is "a way of taking up the problems of life."[9] "Fluid Intelligence" directly correlates with critical thinking skills. You are able to determine patterns, make connections and solve new problems. ] (More)
