[FROM THE TEXT]
Here is a riddle for you: How are you and a computer alike? Computers follow a set of instructions to perform a function, and so do you. Think about it. In math class, for instance, your teacher tells you how to turn an improper fraction into a mixed number. This evening, you may heat up a frozen dinner by following the instructions on the box. The instructions you listen to, view, and read are all designed to teach you to complete a process. Once you know how a process is done, you can share that information by giving instructions. Whether you share instructions orally, in writing, or through a demonstration, your goal is still the same: to teach others what you know.
