Math Modeling

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

behaviors.

– 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.
