What is Mathematical Modeling?

The mathematical modeling  field is more than just math. It is an open-ended-subject where no definite answers exist for any problem. Thinking creatively and out-of-the-box  are fundamental to successfully solving issues.
Mathematical modeling enables one to connect different fields of studies together including, but not limited to, statistics, algebra, calculus, matrices, programming, and scientific writing.  This vast integration of subjects opens up new opportunities and discoveries.
