There is the tightest relation between mathematics and physics among all disciplines. Specifically, mathematics can serve as an instrument to describe physical phenomena, while physical theory can be used to interpret mathematical laws. As a basic discipline of all natural disciplines, mathematics can provide operational tools, thinking methods, and process simplification approaches for the proposal and development of physical problems. The mathematical graphical model can effectively improve the efficiency of problem solving. This study is conducted based on the transfer theory. Besides, the methods and practice of physical problem solving with mathematical graphical models are analyzed from the perspective of specific examples in physics.
