Teaching Mathematical Modelling: Connecting to Research and Practice by Gloria Ann Stillman

This book provides readers with an overview of recent international research and developments in the teaching and learning of modelling and applications from a variety of theoretical and practical perspectives. There is a strong focus on pedagogical issues for teaching and learning of modelling as well as research into teaching and practice. The teaching of applications of mathematics and mathematical modelling from the early years through primary and secondary school and at tertiary level is rising in prominence in many parts of the world commensurate with an ever-increasing usage of mathematics in business, the environment, industry and everyday life. The authors are all members of the International Community of Teachers of Mathematical Modelling and Applications and important researchers in mathematics education and mathematics. The book will be of interest to teachers, practitioners and researchers in universities, polytechnics, teacher education, curriculum and policy.


From the reviews: Teaching Mathematical Modelling: Connecting to Research and Practice is a vast collection of international research on teaching mathematical modeling of applied problems. The book explores both pedagogical and teaching practices for the interested reader. The students
ages range from elementary to secondary schooling years, with a heavy focus on how teachers can use real

-world examples in their mathematics classes. (Peter Olszewski, MAA Reviews, May, 2014)
