Definitions for "Modelling"
Keywords:  wax, pliable, sculpture, clay, illusion
An analytical technique using simulated processes to explain the impact of one or more factors on a number of outcomes.
Representation by lighting of the three-dimensional nature of an original in a two-dimensional reproduction.
Working pliable material, such as clay or wax, into three-dimensional forms.
Learning by observing and imitating the behaviour of others.
technique of behaviour therapy in which the client learns by watching someone else perform the behavior. Learning and change occur through imitation.
Providing a behavioural example of how a task is to be undertaken so that another can learn by imitation. morphology The way we put word together to form a sentence eg., placement of noun relative to verb. phoneme Smallest unit of sound in a language that conveys meaning eg., /ph/ and /0/ in phoneme. phonetic The actual sound that the phoneme makes when spoken eg., /ph/ phonetically is /f/.
Creating a model of what might happen in the future, using a set of equations that relate inputs to outputs - a mathematical model, that runs on a computer. Special software is available for creating these models, or you can simply use a spreadsheet, setting up a series of formulas in cells that reference one another. The difficulty lies in verifying the assumptions embodied in the equations - often not a mathematical process at all.
Using a spreadsheet or other software to explore the effect of changing variables in a given scenario.
Forecasting technique normally involving the use of computer software; software is used to identify the nature and strength of relationships between variables contained in sets of data.
A demonstration of an activity, emphasising the stages of the process and the standard of work expected.
Demonstrating to the learner how to do a task. Modelling often involves thinking aloud or talking about how to work through a task.
Working from a known concrete example as a guide.
the actual or illusionistic shaping of a form to create plasticity or a sense of volume (ATA fig. 2-19; 9-17)
the recreation of an event or object in a controlled environment in order to predict results from that event or object.
Testing, developing and predicting ideas and outcomes. Computers are often used e.g. using a computer programme to model the nutritional value of food.
forward modelling computes the respective gravity or magnetic responses to a given geological model. This may then be compared with the observed responses for the section to determine the accuracy of the input model. (see also Interpretation, 2D, 2.5D and 3D modelling.) back
Analysing a situation and converting it into a computer model to analyse its operation. See ‘Model (computer)’.
Development of prototypes, scale models, computer models before construction to test a possible design solution.
the act of representing something (usually on a smaller scale)
Using numerical methods and relationships to represent real life situations as a basis for business projections.
The mathematical representation of real world relationships to aid better understanding of functional relationships and aid decision making.
Light Continuous light supplied by the flash unit to allow photographer to judge the illumination.
Keywords:  free, objects, creating, process, form
The process of creating free-form 3-D objects.
