Teacher beliefs about mathematical modelling

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference Paperpeer-review


Drawing upon a theoretical framework based on beliefs, learning and teaching of mathematical modelling as well mathematical modelling itself, this paper explores mathematics teachers ́ beliefs about these themes. Based on responses to an online questionnaire, teachers’ beliefs, experiences, and mathematical modelling lessons were shared from the teachers’ perspective; several similarities with the cyclical process of modelling emerged, as well as sharing a new point of view of the aspects that teachers consider as mathematical modelling for example, real-life situations and processes behind mathematics problems.
