Model, View, Controller (MVC) is a standard methodology for separating logical components into three parts. All project developers can then use this common structure. It provides a common distribution of the code we use and allows for more code re-usability and less code duplication. Each part holds a function.

Model: The model contains the logic that access the data and is where most business logic is found.

View: The view handles the elements used to display the data to the end user.

Controller: The controller is what manages the user input and passes it to the model. After which, the model returns the data sets and passes it forward to the view for display.
