Mathematik lernen soll Mathematik f\"ur Sch\"uler sinnvoll machen. Am Beispiel einer Unterrichtssituation zeigt der Autor, wie die Auseinandersetzung mit realit\"atsbezogenen mathematischen Modellen ein solches Lernen f\"ordert.
In different times and places many educators, researchers and teachers have been arguing that mathematics education in secondary school should integrate mathematical modelling and applications. One of the main ideas underlying this trend is that students learn mathematics while working in a given real world problem. Theory can help us to better understand students' mathematics learning in relation to mathematical modelling activity. Using part of an example of secondary school students solving a problem in the mathematics class, I analyse the idea of (a) meaningmaking in mathematics, and (b) its relation to mathematical modelling.
