Need a **precise and commonly accepted representation**
that supports ** multiple levels of abstraction**.

The language of mathematics
provides **one** possible starting point (for Computer Science, as for other sciences).

When structured into
algorithmic form, this language is commonly referred to as **pseudocode**.

**Question**: What distinguishes the language of mathematics from the language(s) of computer science?
