Mathematical / Quantitative Models | Can analyze a real world example sufficiently to conceptualize a simulation of the system, which is complex enough to give meaningful results, but simple enough to be understandable. | Can simplify complex models to obtain approximate results and understand the limitations imposed by that approximation. | Can recognize and appreciate meaningful use of models to understand the world at large. |
