Presentation given as part of a minisymposium at SIAM 2016 on interdisciplinary approaches to modeling.
Here we present a framework for thinking about what models and modeling are, particularly to other disciplines. We encourage that differing disciplinary approaches are seen as part of a larger picture of this framework, thinking about model representations in the rule of five, and modeling as the act of moving between representations. We provide examples to illustrate and acknowledge language can interfere with helping students make connections between disciplines, even between statistics and mathematical modeling. Although in targeted to teaching modeling skills to biologists, the lessons can be extrapolated to a variety of other interdisciplinary conversations.
