ab: Summary: The idea about a general mathematical modelling process is one of
the main components of the studies for teaching and learning
mathematical modelling. In this article we are interested in showing
that the approaches given to mathematical modelling activities, even if
they are in perspective related to learning and instruction, can be
distinguished, especially as regards the construction and use of
mathematical models. To this end we present two activities that differ
primarily in relation to data and methods used to obtain the model: in
one situation models are obtained and analyzed from qualitative
information while in another situation that construction starts from
quantitative data about the phenomenon under study. What the students
have to do ‒ the students’ actions ‒ differ in these different
approaches.
