Analysing skid marks

Introduction

Unit image

In unit MSXR209_1 you saw how some of the stages of a mathematical modelling process can be applied in the context of modelling pollution in the Great Lakes. In this unit you are asked to relate the stages of the mathematical modelling process to another practical example, this time modelling the skid marks caused by vehicle tyres. By considering the example you should be able to draw out and clarify your ideas of mathematical modelling.

This unit, the second in a series of five, builds on the ideas introduced in Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes (MSXR209_1).

This unit is an adapted extract from the course Mathematical modelling (MSXR209) [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]
