There are several factors to keep in mind when creating a mathematical model. These tools will help you test your understanding of what these models are and how to use them to solve math problems.

Use the quiz and worksheet to check you ability to:

- Define what a mathematical model is
- Recall mathematical models you've used before
- Understand what can cause inaccuracies in some models
- Know how to account for real-world variables when developing these models

**Defining key concepts**- ensure that you accurately understand modeling's broad definition and, more specifically, the definition of mathematical modeling**Making connections**- show your understanding of using a model to solve problems**Knowledge application**- use your knowledge to answer questions about particular mathematical models' limitations

In order to learn more about mathematical modeling, read through the corresponding lesson called Using Mathematical Models to Solve Problems. This lesson covers:

- Defining mathematical modeling
- Approaches to consider when creating a model
- Examples of mathematical models
- Knowing a model's limitations in theory and in practice
