Summary:The aim of this book is to assist the reader to build up the necessary range of skills needed to be able to solve problems by mathematical modelling. After an introduction to the general principles and advantages of mathematical modelling, chapters 1 to 4 concentrate on the development of basic modelling skills. Each of chapters 5 to 11 isolates a particular modelling concept and provides exercises aimed at developing skills in the use of that concept. The later chapters may be conveniently read in any order as they are self contained. In keeping with the Work Out approach, each chapter contains a large number of examples and exercises, taken from a variety of subject areas and covering a broad range of difficulty. Answers are provided wherever appropriate
