2009 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
This paper reports on the first results from a study investigating Swedish upper secondary students’ (11th – 12th grade) mathematical modelling competency. Using non-parametric statistical methods the data from 381 students are analysed and the students’ modelling competency is described in terms of seven subcompetencies. Possible factors affecting the students’ mathematical competency such as attitudes toward modelling, previous experiences, last taken mathematics course, grade, class and gender were also investigated.
