If we want to solve a problem then one approach is to make a model which captures important aspects of the circumstances of the problem. If the model is accurate and detailed enough then working with it should shed further light on the problem. Usually, a model means a simplified physical replica of something. For example, many childrens’ toys are models of far more complex devices. Models may be constructed at differing levels of closeness to the thing being modelled. For example, a basic toy car has four wheels so that it can be pushed across a floor. A more complex model might have steerable wheels. An even more detailed model might have an electric motor so that it does not need to be pushed. Finally, the model might have remote control so that its speed and direction can be changed without direct contact.
