Abassian, Aline; Safi, Farshid; Bush, Sarah; Bostic, Jonathan – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2020
This article presents a review of literature exploring five different perspectives on mathematical modeling in mathematics education. Because there is not a single agreed-on definition of what mathematical modeling is or how it should be done, a focused and extensive review of mathematical modeling is essential. The five broad classifications…

Sanford, John F.; Naidu, Jaideep T. – Contemporary Issues in Education Research, 2017
The paper argues that mathematical modeling is the essence of computational thinking. Learning a computer language is a valuable assistance in learning logical thinking but of less assistance when learning problem-solving skills. The paper is third in a series and presents some examples of mathematical modeling using spreadsheets at an advanced…

Jung, Hyunyi; Stehr, Eryn M.; He, Jia – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Engaging with mathematical modeling can support learners to collaboratively explore mathematics in integrated ways as well as generate mathematical ideas and representations that may be useful in everyday life. Although several studies provide diverse insights into teaching and learning mathematical modeling, research has yet to be conducted on…

Brand, Sarah; Jung, Hyunyi; Dorlack, Ashley; Gailliot, Samuel – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2021
Most children, when presented with the option between two drink items, will choose the one with "more." But what exactly do children consider when they recognize one object as having more than another? Is it the perceived surface area or volume of an object? Depending on children's cognitive development, the aspect of measurement on…

Gürbüz, Ramazan; Çalik, Muammer – Problems of Education in the 21st Century, 2021
Since contemporary learning theories, strategies and models offer the interdisciplinary approach, educators need new pedagogical alternative ways to attain it in practicum. For this reason, the current research aimed to illustrate how to intertwine mathematical modeling with an environmental issue that recruits waste management (e.g.,…

Corum, Kimberly; Garofalo, Joe – Mathematics Teacher Educator, 2019
Incorporating modeling activities into classroom instruction requires flexibility with pedagogical content knowledge and the ability to understand and interpret students' thinking, skills that teachers often develop through experience. One way to support preservice mathematics teachers' (PSMTs) proficiency with mathematical modeling is by…

Asempapa, Reuben S.; Love, Tyler S. – School Science and Mathematics, 2021
Mathematical modeling is a critical component of the current K-12 mathematics, science, and technology and engineering (T&E) educational standards in the United States. However, mathematical modeling is often overlooked or underemphasized in integrative STEM lessons. This could be attributed to teachers' limited content and pedagogical…

Czocher, Jennifer A.; Maldonado, Luz – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2015
Given the Common Core's dual emphases on mathematical modeling, there is a need to understand modeling as a practice and content standard to develop students' mathematical modeling skills. This study of 12 students from differing levels of mathematics instruction and English Language proficiency includes analysis of their modeling with mathematics…

Sahin, Seda; Dogan, Muhammed Fatih; Cavus Erdem, Zeynep; Gurbuz, Ramazan; Temurtas, Ali – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2019
This study examined the criteria used by prospective mathematics teachers in determining whether a problem was a mathematical modeling problem. Two data collection tools were used in this case study. The first was a written evaluation form which consists of four problems developed by 27 prospective teachers individually that enrolled in a…

Hankeln, Corinna – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2020
The study presented in this article takes a closer look at how French and German high-school students deal with a mathematical modeling problem, what blockages they encounter and how differences in the modeling processes between students from both nations can be explained by differences between the teaching and learning of mathematical modeling in…

Asempapa, Reuben S. – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2020
This study addresses a gap in the literature on mathematical modeling education by developing the mathematical modeling knowledge scale (MMKS). The MMKS is a quantitative tool created to assess teachers' knowledge of the nature of mathematical modeling. Quantitative instruments to measure modeling knowledge is scare in the literature partially due…
