In the first unit of this series you saw how some of the stages of a mathematical modelling process can be applied in the context of modelling pollution in the Great Lakes. In this second unit you are asked to relate the stages of the mathematical modelling process to another practical example, this time modelling the skid marks caused by vehicle tyres. By considering the example you should be able to draw out and clarify your ideas of mathematical modelling.

This unit will first highlight how psychology is now a very visible part of everyday life and then explore its diverse roots in medicine, philosophy, biology, psychoanalysis and e

If you have visited a desert you will have noticed the sparse plant cover, or in certain sandy deserts, the almost complete absence of plant life. The low productivity of deserts derives from their defining feature, which is aridity. Scarcity of water restricts the diversity and amount of plant cover, and in turn the diversity and abundance of animals. However, if you were visiting one of the American deserts after rains, you would be rewarded by the sight of the desert â€˜in bloomâ€™, as vas

Prescribing doctors may feel under pressure to â€˜do somethingâ€™ to help the person who presents to them. Neither party may be aware of other options that may be effective in helping in these potentially difficult situations. Indeed, local support groups, psychotherapy, counselling and other possible alternatives may not be readily available.
