  • Mathematics has been described as the science of patterns. Natural science can be characterized as the investigation of patterns in nature. Central to both domains is the notion of model as a unit of coherently structured knowledge. Modeling Theory is concerned with models as basic structures in cognition as well as scientific knowledge. It maintains a sharp distinction between mental models that people think with and conceptual models that are publicly shared. This supports a view that… CONTINUE READING
