Correctness of a model

From Computer Science Wiki
Modeling & Simulation[1]

You must develop logical and critical thinking to discuss the correctness of a model.

Example: A teenager[edit]

I want to model a teenager. I hope to use this model to help teenagers grow into happier, more successful human beings. I know this is a huge idea, as everyone has a different idea of success and happiness. However, I am certain I can choose the right variables and create a model.

Imagine I had a model of a teenager. Right now, I'm thinking of the following variables:

  1. physical health (1 to 100)
    1. exercise
    2. sport
    3. diet
    4. sleep
    5. substance / smoking use
  2. mental health (1 to 100)
    1. academic engagement
  3. emotional health (1 to 100)
    1. mood swings
    2. manage emotions
    3. emotional intelligence
  4. meaningful social connections (1 to 100)
  5. family stability (1 to 100)
  6. environment safety / stability (1 to 100)
  7. meaning in life (1 to 100)
  8. active in community (1 to 100)
  9. meaningful goals (1 to 100)
  10. fun / laughter (1 to 100)


Standards[edit]

  • Discuss the correctness of a model by comparing generated results with data that were observed in the original problem
