Example archaeological method of presenting pottery so that one picture portrays both outward, inward decoration and the cross-section.
(Sabherwal & Fernandez, 2009). Analogy model a method of representing a phenomenon of the world and is used to model the mechanics of a large scale problem at a scale that is applicable to a laboratory setting, for example, a mountain belt many kilometers in length and width can be modelled in the lab using an apparatus less than one meter in size that will fit on a tabletop(Sabherwal & Fernandez, 2009). A structure and process for analysing a dataset (Sabherwal & Fernandez, 2009). For example, a decision tree is a model for the classification of a dataset (Sabherwal & Fernandez, 2009).
