Modelling from Primary to Upper Secondary School: Findings of Empirical Research – Overview
The study of any phenomenon is enhanced by attention to the various habitats in which it can be situated, and that is certainly true of mathematical modelling as an educational phenomenon. Activities in mathematical modelling take strikingly different forms as they are institutionalised across the world. This chapter will offer challenging insights into mathematical modelling activities around the world and at different levels of educational systems. Several different research paradigms and/or theoretical frameworks are discussed and used to present and discuss different findings and results.
