*Chapter 7*: Identifying Challenges within Solutions

In this chapter, we will be evaluating algorithms and diagrams as we learn to navigate through some common errors and to determine whether possible adjustments can be made to an existing algorithm to simplify it. We will evaluate the solutions based on the problem description to verify whether the solution aligns with the problem. We will be learning about identifying pitfalls in the solution design process. As a note, we will expand on the content of this chapter, later in this book, in *Section 2*, *Applying Python and Computational Thinking*, and *Section 3*, *Data Processing, Analysis, and Applications Using Computational Thinking and Python*, of this book as we dive deeper into the **Python** programming language.

To learn about debugging, let's remind ourselves that the computational thinking process is not linear. Even when we are working from the original problem, we will sometimes redefine the problem or need to adjust the generalization...
