- When investigating or describing a system, the boundaries and initial conditions of the system need to be defined.
- When investigating or describing a system, the boundaries and initial conditions of the system need to be defined and their inputs and outputs analyzed and described using models.
- Models (e.g., physical, mathematical, computer models) can be used to simulate systems and interactions—including energy, matter, and information flows—within and between systems at different scales.
- The shape and stability of structures of natural and designed objects are related to their function(s).
