Title Developing modelling skills
Description
  • <p>This course provides an overview of the processes involved in developing models. It starts by explaining how to specify the purpose of the model and moves on to look at aspects involved in creating models, such as simplifying problems, choosing variables and parameters, formulating relationships and finding solutions. You will also look at interpreting results and evaluating models.</p><p>This course, the third in a series of five, builds on the ideas introduced and developed 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> and <a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/mathematics-and-statistics/statistics/analysing-skid-marks/content-section-0"><i>Analysing skid marks</i></a>.</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_&amp;MEDIA=ou">Mathematics</a>.</p>
  • This unit is the third in the series of five units on mathematical modellng. It provides an overview of the processes involved in developing models, starting by explaining how to specify the purpose of the model. It then moves on to look at aspects involved in creating models, such as simplifying problems, choosing variables and parameters, formulating relationships and finding solutions. You will also look at interpreting results and evaluating models. This unit assumes that you have previously studied the units 'Modelling pollution in the Great Lakes' and 'Analysing skid marks'.<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/mathematics-and-statistics/mathematics-education/developing-modelling-skills/content-section-0" /> First published on Mon, 13 Jun 2011 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/mathematics-and-statistics/mathematics-education/developing-modelling-skills/content-section-0">Developing modelling skills</a>.
