Mathematical modeling is an ability that has been widely valued in recent years. Take the United States as an example. In the Common Core State Standards Initiative for K-12 announced by CCSSO (Council of Chief State School Officers) and NGA Center (The National Governors Association Center for Best Practices) in 2010, mathematical modeling is one of the eight mathematical practice standards for mathematics education. In addition to the detailed statements of various mathematical standards, the initiative also proposed six key areas of overall K12 mathematics education. Mathematical modeling is also one of them, which shows the importance of mathematical modeling.
