Developing modelling skills

Introduction

Unit image

This unit provides an overview of the processes involved in developing models. It starts by explaining how to specify the purpose of the model and moves on to look at aspects involved in creating models, such as simplifying problems, choosing variables and parameters, formulating relationships and finding solutions. You will also look at interpreting results and evaluating models.

This unit, the third in a series of five, builds on the ideas introduced and developed in Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] and Analysing skid marks.

This unit is an adapted extract from the course MSXR209 Mathematical modelling.
