Math Modeling in Educational Research: An Approach to Methodological Fallacies
Varaki, Bakhtiar S.; Earl, Lorna
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v31 n2 Article 3 2006
Math modeling is currently at the focus of educational methodologists' attention. However, little is known about the extent to which principles of the math modeling lead to methodological fallacies in educational research. The main purpose of this paper is to explore the nature and principles of math modeling and to examine its application in educational research according to transcendental realism theory. The conclusion of the article suggests some methodological fallacies in educational research. Finally, the implications of the fallacies in educational research are considered.
