Simple modelling activities

These simple modelling problems involve the sorts of mathematical processes that we often undertake automatically. In doing so, we can overlook that we have made assumptions that are so ‘obvious’ that we did not realise that we had made them. Students should be encouraged to articulate the assumptions and processes required. Those already familiar with basic modelling approaches might wish to skip to later material.
