# modeling and simulation

What is a simulation and why are they used?
A
A simulation is a giant model in motion for a test.
B
A simulation uses one or more models to imitate how those models might function in a real life situation.
C
A simulation tests a hypothesis with 100% accuracy.
D
A simulation is the mathematical formula

B
A simulation uses one or more models to imitate how those models might function in a real life situation.
C
A simulation tests a hypothesis with 100% accuracy.
D

#### Slide 1 -Quiz

Models can be helpful in scientific investigations because
A
may not be possible to work with the real thing.
B
they can be smaller and more manageable than the real thing.
C
they can be safer to work with than the real thing.
D
all of the above

#### Slide 2 -Quiz

Which comes first, the model or the simulation?
A
The two are unrelated and can be created in any order.
B
They are created at the same time because they are pretty much the same thing.
C
The model is created first because a simulation needs models to run.
D
Simulation is created first

Modelling and Simulations

#### Slide 5 -Slide

Learning objective

• Evaluate the Relationship of model to reality & Relationship between a model and a simulation.
•  Identify the social impacts and ethical issues related to Modeling & Simulation

#### Slide 6 -Slide

Relationship between a model and a simulation.

#### Slide 8 -Open question

Why is visualization of data important?

#### Slide 9 -Open question

Evaluate the Relationship of model to reality

#### Slide 10 -Open question

identify the social impacts and ethical issues related to Modeling & Simulation

#### Slide 11 -Open question

• Can be safer and cheaper than the real world.
• Able to test a product or system works before building it.
• Can use it to find unexpected problems.
• Able to explore ‘what if…’ questions.
• Can speed things up or slow them down to see changes over long or short periods of time.

#### Slide 12 -Slide

• Mistakes may be made in the programming or rules of the simulation or model.
• The cost of a simulation model can be high.
• The cost of running several different simulations may be high.
• Time may be needed to make sense of the results.
• People’s reactions to the model or simulation might not be realistic or reliable.

#### Slide 13 -Slide

What are faulty and hidden assumptions?
Too many characteristics are included the model may become large and difficult to manipulate.
Example: An engineer designing a metal bridge assumes that color of the bridge is not relevant to stability. however color of the bridge influence temperature and so on. This is the hidden assumptions.

#### Slide 14 -Slide

What are some problems of simplifying reality?

#### Slide 15 -Open question
