ab: Summary: This chapter examines and discusses how professional mathematical
modellers have learned about modelling as well as their opinions on the
teaching of mathematical modelling in upper secondary education. An
interview study showed that they developed most of their knowledge
about mathematical modelling during their PhD studies and through their
occupation by working with ‘real modelling’. According to the
interviewees mathematical modelling should be a part of mathematics
education in upper secondary school, and in particular it should be
more emphasized as a part of general education to develop students’
critical awareness about how models are used in society. They also gave
suggestions for approaches to teach modelling and examples of modelling
problems to work with from their own workplace.
