...? **Mathematical** Model **Mathematical** models are tools used by mathematicians to formulate real world problems. **Mathematical** models have been evolving constantly, as scientists and other scholars attempt to express complex problems through **mathematical** formulations. Models provide an essential link between **mathematics** and other study disciplines such as economics and philosophy. Models reflect real world phenomenon and this can be confirmed through a suitable test. However not all models can be tested for their application or capability of providing solutions to real world problems. Introduction A model is a representation or an abstraction of a real or...

**Mathematical** Modeling al Affiliation) Introduction The paper applies the second-order differential equations in variousreal life situations. Most of the questions involve the masses that bounce up and down at the spring’s end. The questions apply the accurate descriptions of the motion under various motions of situations. The work also introduces a lot of results and notions that are equally applicable in things that oscillate and vibrate in similar manner. For instance, the current analysis in fundamental circuit is analogous to analysis involving the spring’s mass. Discussion Diagram representing the (MSD) System Source: "Mass-Spring-Damper."

Unfortunately studies in this area have been largely neglected as researchers have focused their attention and resources mainly on Learning Disabilities. However, "Despite the lack of systematic research in the MD area, extant cognitive and neuropsychological studies of **mathematical** achievement and **mathematical** disorder provide valuable insights into the specific deficits that might underlie **mathematical** disabilities." (Geary 1993, 345) The aim of this research...

Working on **mathematical** tasks involving geometric **thinking**, as experienced in various tasks, falls under different levels of difficult from learner to learner. For example, there are problems those mere calculations in order to arrive at conclusions, while there are problems that need applications of **mathematical** concepts and problem solving techniques in order to arrive at a solution. These latter problems may be tricky and hard to conceptualize but with a clear basis and...

...Objective Way of **thinking** using **mathematical** principles This paper encompasses an examination of the premise of using an objective proach to **thinking** in regard to **mathematical** principles. Two big questions will be considered while examining the premise. The context they will be considered under include addressing the nature of reality we need to understand its connection to consciousness and **mathematics** and as Roger Pemrose introduced
‘We have to understand the connection between physical reality, conscious mentality and the wonderful world of **mathematics**’ (Pemrose p2)
The two big questions that will be examined are: What is reality and Can we be sure that the world we experience is not a figment of our imaginations? My... .]

...Introduction
**Mathematical** logics can be defined as the application **mathematical** formulas and techniques to solve logical problems. In the modern times, **mathematical** logic includes model theory, set theory, re-cursion theory and proof theory (Lavrov and Maksimova 170). Modal logics may have been used since time immemorial, especially by philosophers. In the modern times I believe that the most important Change in **mathematical** logic has been the development of many other kinds of logics which have supplemented the standard or classical one used in **Mathematics**. **Mathematical** logics help to bring formality in facts. It does not only promote proper reasoning but it also enhances a proper use of common sense (Lavrov and Maksimova 170... ...

...**Mathematical** Modelling al Affiliation **Mathematical** modelling is a fundamental way of using **mathematics** to solve real world situations. The solution involves both a theoretical approach to describe the system in general, and a **mathematical** approach where numerical answers are required. This report uses roller coaster and rectangular area problems to demonstrate the application of **mathematical** modelling using differentiation.
Introduction
Explaining **mathematical** modelling
In as much as **mathematical** modelling is **mathematics**, it is also a theoretical science, thus offers **mathematical** answers...

...Young Children **Mathematical** **Thinking**-Number Senses Introduction Young children’s **mathematical** learning and **thinking** is important for the future understanding of the subjects in senior classes. The fundamental **mathematical** concepts introduced in pre-school and junior classes create a foundation for understanding of the subjects in advanced levels. In the junior learning stages, children are introduced to various aspects of **Mathematics** that include number sense, measurement sense, data sense and the spatial sense (Mayesky, 2012).
Due to the nature of students at this young stage of learning, a clear pedagogy is required in handling these...
