Mathematical modeling is a process that uses mathematics to represent, analyze,
make predictions or otherwise provide insight into real-world phenomena.
Most short definitions we find emphasize this most important aspect, namely the relation
between modeling and the world around us.
– Using the language of mathematics to quantify real-world phenomena and analyze
– Using math to explore and develop our understanding of real world problems.
– An iterative problem solving process in which mathematics is used to investigate and
develop deeper understanding.
