1 Introduction! Why aren’t all Penguins Criminals?

2 A simplified version of a real life situation that can tell us important things about the real world A Model is...

3 Examples of Models Weather Forecasting "HouseTrained" by Mark Strozier Monopoly

4 HOW TO BUILD A MODEL QUESTIONS WE WANT TO INVESTIGATE HOW WILL WE ANSWER THIS SIMPLIFICATIONS ASSUMPTIONS

5 HOW TO BUILD A MODEL QUESTIONS WE WANT TO INVESTIGATE Purpose for building the model? What do we want the model to do? HOW WILL WE ANSWER THIS SIMPLIFICATIONS ASSUMPTIONS

6 HOW TO BUILD A MODEL QUESTIONS WE WANT TO INVESTIGATE Purpose for building the model? What do we want the model to do? HOW WILL WE ANSWER THIS What type of model should we use to answer the question(s)? SIMPLIFICATIONS ASSUMPTIONS

7 HOW TO BUILD A MODEL QUESTIONS WE WANT TO INVESTIGATE Purpose for building the model? What do we want the model to do? HOW WILL WE ANSWER THIS What type of model should we use to answer the question(s)? SIMPLIFICATIONS We have to make some things in the model simpler than they are in reality so the model is easier to use ASSUMPTIONS

8 HOW TO BUILD A MODEL QUESTIONS WE WANT TO INVESTIGATE Purpose for building the model? What do we want the model to do? HOW WILL WE ANSWER THIS What type of model should we use to answer the question(s)? SIMPLIFICATIONS We have to make some things in the model simpler than they are in reality so the model is easier to use ASSUMPTIONS We have to assume some things about our simplified model which makes it easier to use

10 HOW TO BUILD A MODEL QUESTIONS WE WANT TO INVESTIGATE Can we improve the way aeroplanes fly through the air? HOW WILL WE ANSWER THIS SIMPLIFICATIONS ASSUMPTIONS

11 HOW TO BUILD A MODEL QUESTIONS WE WANT TO INVESTIGATE Can we improve the way aeroplanes fly through the air? HOW WILL WE ANSWER THIS Build a physical model of an aeroplane SIMPLIFICATIONS ASSUMPTIONS

12 HOW TO BUILD A MODEL QUESTIONS WE WANT TO INVESTIGATE Can we improve the way aeroplanes fly through the air? HOW WILL WE ANSWER THIS Build a physical model of an aeroplane SIMPLIFICATIONS Make the model smaller than real planes Remove complicated internal parts ASSUMPTIONS

13 HOW TO BUILD A MODEL QUESTIONS WE WANT TO INVESTIGATE Can we improve the way aeroplanes fly through the air? HOW WILL WE ANSWER THIS Build a physical model of an aeroplane SIMPLIFICATIONS Make the model smaller than real planes Remove complicated internal parts ASSUMPTIONS Small model will fly the same as real planes Left out parts don’t affect how the model flies

15 HOW TO BUILD A MODEL QUESTIONS WE WANT TO INVESTIGATE How many monkeys are there? HOW WILL WE ANSWER THIS SIMPLIFICATIONS ASSUMPTIONS

16 HOW TO BUILD A MODEL QUESTIONS WE WANT TO INVESTIGATE How many monkeys are there? HOW WILL WE ANSWER THIS Mathematical model using data from experiments SIMPLIFICATIONS ASSUMPTIONS

17 HOW TO BUILD A MODEL QUESTIONS WE WANT TO INVESTIGATE How many monkeys are there? HOW WILL WE ANSWER THIS Mathematical model using data from experiments SIMPLIFICATIONSOnly do experiment over small area ASSUMPTIONS

18 HOW TO BUILD A MODEL QUESTIONS WE WANT TO INVESTIGATE How many monkeys are there? HOW WILL WE ANSWER THIS Mathematical model using data from experiments SIMPLIFICATIONSOnly do experiment over small area ASSUMPTIONSMonkeys evenly spread out over rainforest
