This book documents the journey undertaken by educators from the Mathematics and Mathematics Education (MME) Academic Group in the National Institute of Education (NIE) and Singapore schools during a Mathematical Modelling Outreach (MMO) event in June 2010 under the guidance of renowned experts in the field of mathematical modelling. The main goal of MMO was to reach out to Singapore primary and secondary schools and introduce the potentials of mathematical modelling as a platform for eliciting mathematical thinking, communication, and reasoning among students. This book contributes to the expanding literature on mathematical modelling by offering voices from the Singaporean context. It suggests how theoretical perspectives on mathematical modelling can be transformed into actual practice in schools, all within the existing infrastructure of the current Singapore mathematics curriculum. More importantly, the book provides documentary evidence on how plans put in place through MMO in 2010 have since been realised. The publication of this book is hence timely at this juncture. Not only does the book record how MMO was among the first pebbles launched into the pond, it also serves as a bridge over which educators can stand upon to view how the ripple effect had developed from the initial MMO pebble and the directions it may continue to extend. Perhaps in the process, other ripples in the teaching, learning, and research of mathematical modelling can be created.

This book is Volume 8 in the Series on Mathematics Education publications showcasing different themes and trends in mathematics research and practice around the world. This volume features mathematical modelling. It discusses links between theoretical underpinnings of mathematical modelling and various practices in different education systems, with particular emphasis in the Singapore context. In addition, the book documents two events organised by the Mathematics and Mathematics Education Academic Group of the National Institute of Education in June 2010: The Mathematical Modelling Outreach (MMO) and The 2nd Lee Peng Yee Symposium (LPYS). Pre-service teachers, experienced teachers and school students engaged in mathematical modelling processes during the two events. Teaching ideas, learning activities and alternative modes of evaluating the students' learning based on the Singapore Mathematics Curriculum are also presented in this volume.

In this volume cultural, social and cognitive influences on the research and teaching of mathematical modelling are explored from a variety of theoretical and practical perspectives. The authors of the current volume are all members of the International Community of Teachers of Mathematical Modelling and Applications, the peak research body in this field. A distinctive feature of this volume is the high number of authors from South American countries. These authors bring quite a different perspective to modelling than has been showcased in previous books in this series, in particular from a cultural point of view. As well as recent international research, there is a strong emphasis on pedagogical issues including those associated with technology and assessment, in the teaching and learning of modelling. Applications at various levels of education are exemplified. The contributions reflect common issues shared globally and represent emergent or on-going challenges.

This book provides readers with an overview of recent international research and developments in the teaching and learning of modelling and applications from a variety of theoretical and practical perspectives. There is a strong focus on pedagogical issues for teaching and learning of modelling as well as research into teaching and practice. The teaching of applications of mathematics and mathematical modelling from the early years through primary and secondary school and at tertiary level is rising in prominence in many parts of the world commensurate with an ever-increasing usage of mathematics in business, the environment, industry and everyday life. The authors are all members of the International Community of Teachers of Mathematical Modelling and Applications and important researchers in mathematics education and mathematics. The book will be of interest to teachers, practitioners and researchers in universities, polytechnics, teacher education, curriculum and policy.​

International Congresses on Mathematical Education (ICMEs), under the auspices of the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction, are held every four years. Previous Congresses have been held in France (Lyons), England (Exeter), the Federal Republic of Germany (Karlsruhe), and the United States of America (Berkeley). The Fifth International Congress on Mathematical Education (lCME 5) was held in Adelaide, Australia, from August 24-30, 1984. More than 1800 participants from over 70 countries participated in the Congress, while some additional 200 people attended social functions and excursions. The program for ICME 5 was planned and structured by an International Program Committee, and implemented by the National Program Committee in Australia. For the main body of the program, Chief Organisers, assisted by Australian Coordinators, were invited to plan and prepare the individual components of the program which addressed a wide range of topics and interest areas. Each of these teams involved many individuals from around the world in the detailed planning and preparation of the working sessions for their area of program responsibility. For the actual working sessions at the Congress, the smallest group had some 60 members, while the largest had well over 300. In addition to the working sessions, there were three major plenary addresses, several specially invited presentations, and over 420 individual papers in the form of short communications, either as posters or brief talks.

This valuable resource provides an overview of recent research and strategies in developing and applying modelling to promote practice-based research in STEM education. In doing so, it bridges barriers across academic disciplines by suggesting activities that promote integration of qualitative science concepts with the tools of mathematics and engineering. The volume’s three parts offer a comprehensive review, by 1) Presenting a conceptual background of how scientific inquiry can be induced in mathematics classes considering recommendations of prior research, 2) Collecting case studies that were designed using scientific inquiry process designed for math classes, and 3) Exploring future possibilities and directions for the research included within. Among the topics discussed: · STEM education: A platform for multidisciplinary learning. · Teaching and learning representations in STEM. · Formulating conceptual framework for multidisciplinary STEM modeling. · Exploring function continuity in context. · Exploring function transformations using a dynamic system. Scientific Inquiry in Mathematics - Theory and Practice delivers hands-on and concrete strategies for effective STEM teaching in practice to educators within the fields of mathematics, science, and technology. It will be of interest to practicing and future mathematics teachers at all levels, as well as teacher educators, mathematics education researchers, and undergraduate and graduate mathematics students interested in research based methods for integrating inquiry-based learning into STEM classrooms.
