      For me protoypes are basic models, that can be improved. A prototype is a working model, it can help you test certain behaviour, but you need to make it better. So when I’m teaching students how to develop prototypes (using statistics) I warn them that the model may change as they continue with their work. Have you been learning about prototypes?
