**(grades 9-12, page 203)**

Computer modeling explores the logical consequences of a set of instructions
and a set of data. The instructions and data input of a computer model
try to represent the real world so the computer can show what would actually
happen. In this way, computers assist people in making decisions by simulating
the consequences of different possible decisions. (1 of 3)
