When you model something does it have to be a scientific model?
- To make or construct a descriptive or representational model of: computer programs that model climate change.
I am wondering what's the simplest model you can have. Would drawing a circle be considered a model? The circle would be a representation of a ball. Would then drawing a ball be the same as "modelling a ball"? Or is the simplest model either a Venn diagram or a Cartesian graph? Also, is a Venn diagram or a Cartesian graph a scientific model or just a model?
I am not completely sure when to use the verb model because of that.
