The critical step in the use of mathematics for solving real world problems is the building of a suitable mathematical model. This book advocates a novel approach to the teaching of the building process for mathematical models, with emphasis on the art as well as the science aspects. Using a case study approach, the book teaches the mathematical modelling process in a comprehensive framework, presenting an overview of the concepts and techniques needed for modelling. The book is structured in three parts; the first dealing with the science aspect; the second dealing with the art aspects; and the third combining self learning exercises for the student and supplementary resource material for the instructor.
