This essay focuses on computations children focus. This point of view has be adopt by the physics of computation. A branch of theoretical physics, as well as the field of natural computing.
Explain the misconception (In computations children focus on procedures and do not… etc) also include how to remedy this misconception for children in grades 3-5.
Examples of such physical systems include digital computers, mechanical computers, quantum computers. DNA computers, molecular computers, microfluidics-base computers, analog computers, or wetware computers. This point of view computations children focus has be adopt by the physics of computation. A branch of theoretical physics, as well as the field of natural computing.
An even more radical point of view, pancomputationalism. The postulate of digital physics that argues that the evolution of the universe is itself a computation.
Peter Godfrey-Smith has dubbed this the computations children focus “simple mapping account.” Gualtiero Piccinini’s summary of this account states that a physical system can be. To perform a specific computation. When there is a mapping between the state of that system. The computation such that the “microphysical states [of the system] mirror the state transitions between the computational states.
Philosophers such as Jerry Fodor have suggest various accounts. Computation with the restriction that semantic content be a necessary condition for computation. (that is, what differentiates an arbitrary physical system from a computing system is that the operands of the computation represent something). This notion attempts to prevent the logical abstraction of the mapping account of pancomputationalism. The idea that everything can be said to be computing everything.
It states that physical computing systems are types of mechanisms that. By design, perform computations children focus physical computation, or “the manipulation (by a functional mechanism). A medium-independent vehicle according to a rule.” Medium-independence requires that the property is able to be instantiate. Multiple realizers and multiple mechanisms and that the inputs and output. The mechanism also be multiply realizable. In short, medium-independence allows for the use of physical variables with traits other than voltage (as in typical digital computers). This is imperative in considering other types of computation, such as that occurs in the brain or in a quantum computer. A rule, in this sense, provides a mapping among inputs, outputs. And internal states of the physical computing system.Submission words
