ab: Summary: In this chapter we discuss the reformulation of situation models.
In previous modelling teaching and tests, the modelling tasks related
to a real situation were reported for elementary school students. Here
we administer a test before and after a modelling class for lower
secondary school students. The original situation at the pre-test and
the post-test were not changed. The students were required to set up a
problem from a real situation, and draw pictures to explain how they
setup the problem. We focus on pictures to explain the problems as
evidence of situation models. As results, we can confirm that the
reformulation of situation models occurred when simplifying the task,
clearly explaining the task for others, or structuring the task
mathematically.
