"Teaching of Mathematical Modeling – What do we know from research?"

Dr. Werner Blum and Dr. Rita Borromeo-Ferri

University of Kassel, Germany


Abstract: Mathematical modeling is one of the topics in mathematics education that has been discussed most intensely during the last few decades. There are many reasons why modeling, that is translating between the real world and mathematics, ought to be an integral part of the mathematics school curriculum from the first to the final grade.



This Colloquium session will be held in
179 Grace Dodge Hall, beginning with a light informal supper and discussion at
6:30 PM, and the colloquium lecture from
7:30PM to 9:00PM.
Program in Mathematics, Teachers College,
