<p>In the first course of this series 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 second course 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.</p><p>This course, the second in a series of five, builds on the ideas introduced in <span class="oucontent-linkwithtip"><a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/nature-environment/the-environment/environmental-science/modelling-pollution-the-great-lakes/content-section-0"><i>Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes.</i></a></span></p><p>This OpenLearn course provides a sample of level 1 study in <a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/find/mathematics?LKCAMPAIGN=ebook_&MEDIA=ou">Mathematics</a>.</p>
This unit is the second in the series of five units on mathematical modelling. In this unit you are asked to relate the stages of the mathematical modelling process to a previously formulated mathematical model. This example, that of skid mark produced by vehicle tyres, is typical of accounts of modelling that you may see in books, or produced in the workplace. The aim of this unit is to help you to draw out and to clarify mathematical modelling ideas by considering the example. It assumes that you have studied the unit 'Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes'.<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/mathematics-and-statistics/statistics/analysing-skid-marks/content-section-0" /> First published on Thu, 15 May 2014 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/mathematics-and-statistics/statistics/analysing-skid-marks/content-section-0">Analysing skid marks</a>.
