The approach in this Nuffield Advanced Mathematics books was one of guided modelling supported by practical work. In each investigation, students were expected to:
*define the problem that you are going to investigate
*set up a mathematical model of the situation
*analyse the situation mathematically
*translate the solution into everyday language
*use the solution to make predictions
*validate the solution and model.
Unit 1: Modelling motion
Unit 2: Modelling forces
Unit 3: Newtonian modelling
