Mathematical modeling is commonly used to predict the
behavior of phenomena in the environment. Basically,
it involves analyzing a set of points from given data
by plotting them, finding a line of "best fit" through
these points, and then using the resulting graph to
evaluate any given point. Models are useful in
hypothesizing the future behavior of populations,
investments, businesses, and many other things that
are characterized by fluctuations. A mathematical
model usually describes a system by a set of variables
and equations which form the basis of the
relationships between the variables.

The variables represent independent and dependent
properties of the system. Models are classified in a
variety of ways. One of these ways is "linear versus
nonlinear." A linear model is any system whose
behavior can be explained or predicted using a linear
equation or an entire set of linear equations. On the
other hand, a nonlinear model uses at least one
nonlinear equation to describe its behavior. Models
may also be classed as either deterministic or
probabilistic. A deterministic model always performs
the same way under a given set of initially occurring
conditions, while a probabilistic model is
characterized by randomness. Another way of evaluating
models is to determine whether it is static or
dynamic. Static models do not account for time, while
dynamic models do take this element into
consideration. In calculus, dynamic models are often
represented using differential equations. Finally,
models can have lumped parameters or distributed
parameters. A model with lumped parameters has a
consistent state throughout the system and are said to
be homogenous. A model with distributed parameters has
a changing state throughout the system. It is said to
be heterogeneous.

Another way of understanding models is to figure out
if the given model is a "white box" or a "black box"
model. White box models are constructed with all...

...already know what you’re thinking. It’s too early in the morning to be listening to speeches. What if I told you that my speech is about fame? Fortune? And endless hours of admiration? No I’m not talking about being a garbage man, I’m talking about modeling. (NARRATIVE)
B.) Today we will learn about the job of a model.
C.) I’ve been doing research on this subject for about 3 weeks so when I say I know exactly what it takes to become a model, I’m not playing around.
D.)...

...Mathematical logic is something that has been around for a very long time. Centuries Ago Greek and other logicians tried to make sense out of mathematical proofs. As time went on other people tried to do the same thing but using only symbols and variables. But I will get into detail about that a little later. There is also something called set theory, which is related with this. In mathematical logic a lot of terms are used such as axiom and proofs. A...

...Modeling and Simulation
A Simulation is the imitation of the operation of a real-world process or system over time. It involves the generation of an artificial history of a system and observation of the artificial history to draw inferences concerning the operating characteristics of the real system. Simulation can be used both as an analysis tool for predicting the effect of changes to existing systems and as a design tool to predict performance of new systems under varying...

Introduction
Mathematics finds its root way back more than 5000 years. Mathematics has helped people solve complex problems, represent different problems and transfer knowledge and skill about the different problems. Mathematical models have often being developed to solve and represent these problems especially in natural sciences and engineering disciplines (Arnold 2000). Mathematical models can be defined as a...

...I'm here to ask you one question, “Do you think that girls under 16 should be banned from fashion modeling?”
In some countries the ban has already taken place because of the many health concerns related, I think the ban, in many ways, appropriate.
These young girls are not portrayed to be the young girls they are, instead they are being made to look like older adult women.
In 2007 Maddison Gabriel, a 12-year-old Queensland schoolgirl, was selected to be the face of Gold...
