ab: Summary: This paper deals with the learning and teaching of mathematical
modeling. After a definition of modeling competency, some empirical
results about studentsâ€™ learning of modeling will be reported. After
that, five criteria for quality teaching of modeling will be discussed.
Finally, a modeling unit for the ninth grade will be presented, as well
as some results of the accompanying research.
