abstract = {Summary: This book documents the journey undertaken by educators from the Mathematics and Mathematics Education (MME) Academic Group in the National Institute of Education (NIE) and Singapore schools during a Mathematical Modelling Outreach (MMO) event in June 2010 under the guidance of renowned experts in the field of mathematical modelling. In this introductory chapter, we provide the context in which MMO was organised, the theoretical framework of mathematical modelling adopted for MMO, and outline the focuses of mathematical modelling during MMO in relation to the Singapore mathematics curriculum framework. We will also present an overview of the chapters in this book, summarise the progress of modelling efforts in schools to date, and draw implications for future directions on mathematical modelling in schools.},
