Turner, Erin E.; Aguirre, Julia; McDuffie, Amy Roth; Foote, Mary Q. – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2019
Mathematical modeling is a high-leverage topic, critical STEM education and civic engagement. This study investigates culturally responsive, school and community-based approaches that support mathematical modeling with elementary students. Specifically, we analyzed two modeling lessons in one fifth grade classroom, with a focus on how students…

Kohen, Zehavit; Orenstein, Doron – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2021
The use of authentic real-world problems that reflect the applied nature of mathematics is not prevalent in formal secondary school settings. In this study, we explore the interface between workplace mathematics, particularly tech-related real-world (TRW) problems, and school mathematics, through the explication of mathematical modeling. The…

Porgo, Teegwendé V.; Norris, Susan L.; Salanti, Georgia; Johnson, Leigh F.; Simpson, Julie A.; Low, Nicola; Egger, Matthias; Althaus, Christian L. – Research Synthesis Methods, 2019
Mathematical modeling studies are increasingly recognised as an important tool for evidence synthesis and to inform clinical and public health decision-making, particularly when data from systematic reviews of primary studies do not adequately answer a research question. However, systematic reviewers and guideline developers may struggle with…

Chesler, Joshua; Chang, Jen-Mei – Issues in the Undergraduate Mathematics Preparation of School Teachers, 2019
The United States' Common Core Standards for Mathematics give a prominent role for mathematical modeling in the K-12 curriculum. This has implications and creates challenges for teacher preparation programs. We describe one program's attempt to meet these challenges with a course in mathematical modeling for pre-service secondary mathematics…

Hänze, Martin; Leiss, Dominik – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2022
This study examined whether learning with heuristic worked examples can improve students' competency in solving reality-based tasks in mathematics (mathematical modeling competency). We randomly assigned 134 students in Grade 5 and 180 students in Grade 7 to one of three conditions: control condition (students worked on reality-based tasks),…
