ab: Summary: The purpose of this study is to investigate elementary studentsâ€™
communication in process of applying mathematical modeling. For this
study, 22 fifth graders in an elementary school were observed by
applying mathematical modeling process (presentation of problem
$\longrightarrow$ model inducement activity $\longrightarrow$ model
exploration activity $\longrightarrow$ model application activity). And
the level of their communication with their activity sheets and
outputs, observation records and interviews were also analyzed.
Additionally, by analyzing the activity cases of Group A and Group B,
this study researched that what is a positive influence on studentsâ€™
communication skills. Whereas Group A showed significant advance in the
level of communication, Group B who communicated actively on speaking
area but not on every areas showed insensible changes. To improve
communication abilities, cognitive tension and debate situation are
needed. This means, mathematical education should continuously provide
students with mathematical communication learning, and a class which
contains mathematical communication experiences (such as mathematical
modeling) will be needed.
