Computational Issues in Modelling
This article discusses computational aspects of modelling in the context
of computer aided learing. It addresses the question: "What is special
about computers for modelling?", and includes an analysis of the nature
and characteristics of a variety of kinds of computational model. It
concludes by describing the design of IQON, a modelling system to
support everyday practical reasoning about quantities.
