What is Mathematical Modeling?

The mathematical modeling field is more than just math. It is an open-ended research subject where no definite answers exist for any problem. Thinking creatively and out-of-the-box are fundamental to successfully solving issues.
Math 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.
