Ciltas, Alper; Isik, Ahmet
Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, v13 n2 p1187-1192 Spr 2013
The aim of this study was to examine the modelling skills of prospective elementary mathematics teachers who were studying the mathematical modelling method. The research study group was composed of 35 prospective teachers. The exploratory case analysis method was used in the study. The data were obtained via semi-structured interviews and a mathematical modelling test. The phenomenographic method and descriptive analysis were used in analysing the data. As a result of the study, it was determined that there was a significant change in the knowledge, skills, and opinions of prospective teachers on mathematical modelling. Therefore, it was considered that it would be appropriate to feature mathematical modelling in the teaching curriculum in universities' faculties of education for prospective teachers to use in their courses.
