Abstract

There are many common terms in use today that everyone knows; but when asked the definition of the term, can greatly fluctuate among individuals. Most of the time, this difference in meaning is based on individual academic discipline exposure. Simulation is one such term that is frequently used, but the interpretation of the word varies among disciplines. The purpose here is to examine the word simulation and to look at how the word is defined and applied in several academic fields, such as: mathematics, engineering, technology and gaming. However, before the term simulation can be explored, defining the broad meaning of mathematics, engineering, technology and gaming is important. In addition, the paper will compare some of the inputs and outputs of simulation in these fields.
