    Super Models!
    Dimensional thinking involves moving from 2-D to 3-D or vice versa; mapping, or transforming information provided in one set of dimensions to another set; scaling, or altering the proportions of an object or process within one set of dimensions; and conceptualizing dimensions beyond space and time as we know them.

    How does one take a globe and squish it into a map? Anyone who has experimented with peeling the rind of an orange and flattening it out knows how many possibilities there are. The fact is, there is no single right way to do this, either for an orange or for the globe. [207]

    In almost all cases, the point of a model is to make accessible something that is difficult to experience easily. [229] Think about all of thesimulation opportunities available to us today. Many of the games on X-Box, Wii, PlayStation 3, DS and PSP are really simulations of hard to experience or unsafe environments brought into our homes for our pleasure and experience. Whether it is a battle field mission, an ace combat battle, the nurturing of a simulated society, an Alaskan fishingexpedition, a challenging workout or an NFL football game, these are all available as simulations. The GameZone web site lists hundreds if not thousands of simulation games. While these are simulations produced for their entertainment value, there are many other simulations that carry a much greater gravity.
    Models can be smaller than life, life-sized or bigger; the Chicago Art Institute's Mrs. James Ward Thorne collection of model room interiors, which allow visitors to look inside 1/12-scale recreations. [229] Below is a recreation "South Carolina Drawing Room from 1775-1800.

    The Military Channel's At Sea:Training Simulation shows us a Navy simulator used to train its submarine crews. While the model is life sized, the entire submarine is not. The huge size of the model allows them to play-act the part of something much smaller [230] and gives our military the opportunity to simulate different situations that may occur during their missions.

    Example #4: Syllables
    When teaching syllables, students begin by identifying the syllables by clapping out the number of sounds. Though this is modeling the number of syllables, in order to take it one step further, students could roll a long roll of play-doh and cut it into parts, once we figure out how many syllables in has. If the word flower has two syllables has two parts, they would cut it in half. Once students are starting to read, in order for them to practice the chunking of parts, students would be given a cut-out of an object, but this time it would have the word spelled on it. They would have to cut the flower between the letters to separate the parts. This could also be done by “giving a haircut” where students have a paper doll and strips of paper as the hair with words written on them. We could cut the hair, to break apart the word into syllables. These ideas would be visual for a student and would help to concentrate on the word and how the break-up of the letters and words help to create syllables and chunking patterns in reading and writing.
