ab: Summary: Over the last two decades, research on learning and teaching
mathematical applications greatly advanced our understanding of the
processes involved in mathematical modelling. However, the vast
majority of examples and concepts developed so far barely include a key
source of information: data. Numerical information generated from
measurements of the quantities involved is used neither at the
validation nor at the modelling step. We adopt a data-oriented
approach. In the context of modelling functional relationships, we look
at the relationship between modelling competencies and statistical
literacy and provide empirical evidence that proficiency in these areas
can be jointly improved.
