Smith, D. N.
Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, v16 n3 p101-06 Sep 1997
Argues that a major difficulty in learning how to do mathematical modeling is in the first independent run through the modeling cycle. Reviews a case study (N=12) on mathematical modeling and presents the conclusions in three sections: (1) the choice of task; (2) the presentation of the task; and (3) tutor intervention and support.
