Explains the relevance and importance of mathematical modelling for a non-technical audience.The connection of this kind of proportional reasoning to arithmetic growth models is quite direct: an arithmetic growth assumption ... In fact, if we know how much growth occurs in a year, we can actually figure out how much growth occurs in any other ... The end result is this: the functional equation that we derived for arithmetic growth makes sense even when the ... Then, both the amount of time ( n) and the amount of money a are continuous variables, linked by the functional equation.
