What is Mathematical Modelling


This series of short videos provides a quick introduction to mathematical modelling.


Mathematical modelling involves solving real world problems by representing these problems as mathematical problems and then solving them mathematically. Watch the following instructional video which briefly explains what mathematical modelling is.




Mathematical modelling is usually carried out in a systematic fashion, through various stages. The process of mathematical modelling is explained in the following video




There are several approaches to mathematical modelling. In this video, three common approaches are introduced, along with simple examples to illustrate these approaches.




In addition to the usual mathematical knowledge and techniques of solving mathematical problems, mathematical modelling requires some skills and competencies. In the following video, a few of the skills related to mathematical modelling are listed.
