ab: Summary: This article presents the results of a research whose empirical
data were obtained from the use of mathematical modelling as a teaching
method for Differential Integral Calculus in a Civil Engineering
course. The objectives of the research were to evaluate studentsâ€™
learning of mathematics, analyze their competence and ability in using
the model and verify the principal advantages and difficulties in
establishing modelling as a teaching methodology in a regular degree
course.
