ab: Summary: In this overview and critique of Perspective II, we briefly focus
on several ways that models \& modeling perspectives (MMP) can be used
to provide a unifying theoretical framework for developing both: (a) a
coherent summary of the kind of research reported in this book, and (b)
a useful list of testable claims that appear to be priorities to
investigate in future research emanating from the kind of studies
reported here. In particular, MMP was developed to identify: (a)
emerging new types of mathematical thinking that appear to be needed
beyond mathematics classrooms ‒ including in situations involving new
sciences (e.g., social sciences, engineering) not traditionally
emphasized in K-12 curriculum materials, (b) new ways to operationally
define important achievements currently being ignored in both school
testing programs and documents specifying standards for teaching and
learning, and (c) new teaching and learning opportunities made possible
by new model-development tools for students.
