At the core of modelling: Connecting, coordinating and integrating models
2015 (English)In: Proceedings of the 9th Congress of European Research in Mathematics Education / [ed] K. Krainer & N. Vondrová, 2015, 802-808 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This theoretical paper introduces the notions of connecting, coordinating and integrating models to analyse and reflect on how models are created and developed. We define, discuss and apply these constructs to some theoretical perspectives in the present modelling discourse. We draw on an example from a model application activity within a model development sequence to illustrate these constructs. Our hope is to spark a discussion that will enhance our understanding about the nature of mathematical modelling and the teaching and learning of, and through, modelling.
