Concept of Mathematical Modeling

Mathematical modeling is a process of applying mathematics to a real life situation. A Model in this context is a simplified, mathematical concept that represents a real life situation.

Mathematical models are developed to help in the understanding of physical phenomena.

The formulation of a model usually involves:

1. making observations;
