ab: Summary: Too often powerful and beautiful mathematical ideas are learned
(and taught) in a procedural manner, thus depriving students of an
experience in which they create and refine ideas for themselves. As a
first step toward improving the current undesirable situation in
undergraduate mathematics education, this chapter describes several
different modeling perspectives and their implications for teaching and
learning.
