Models in Science
About. Models offer a way to advance understanding in science. They help students to 'see' a beating heart or food digestion; the solar system or an ecosystem and they help by visualising abstract ideas such as particle theory or energy transfer. This 3-page guide, 'harvested' from a larger DfES document, begins to classify the models and analogies used around age 13.
