Modelling Task Design: Science Teachers’ View

Resultado de la investigación: Capítulo del libro/informe/acta de congresoCapítulorevisión exhaustiva


A seminar was organised to promote interdisciplinary work between teachers from different departments at a university in order to design pedagogical situations to teach mathematical modelling in the first years of higher education. This chapter presents the views of teachers from different disciplines related to skills needed to work with models in physics, biology and mathematics. The participants discussed how models are present in their courses. They also highlight the students’ skills that are relevant to success in working with models in sciences. The main findings were that interpreting graphs and structuring a model with information from other models are considered relevant competences by the sample of science teachers. The discussion on designing teaching activities also revealed the university teachers’ conceptions regarding mathematical modelling and models.
