Journal of the Learning Sciences, v7 n3-4 p429-49 1998
A design context for developing children's understanding of the natural world via designing, building, testing, and evaluation of models was studied. Children were asked to design models of human elbows which provided opportunities to develop their understanding of the relations between mathematics and science through the construction and interpretation of data tables and graphs.
