How Mental Models and Mathematics Help Solve Engineering Problems

Too Long; Didn’t Read

We’ll describe the problem-solving thought process by an engineer, based on a real-world problem. And how to approach this process more systematically.

How the ability to draw analogies from other areas of knowledge can help in this process. And what mental models have to do with it.

Based on a specific example, we will see how even basic mathematical knowledge can help solve practical problems.

And we will find out how IMDB sorts its top movies list 🙂
