ab: Summary: This study examined how mathematical modeling activities within a
collaborative group impact on students’ perceived ‘value’ of
mathematics. With a unified framework of Makiguchi’s theory of
‘value’, mathematical disposition, and identity, the study
identifled the elements of the value-beauty, gains, and social
good-with the observable evidences of mathematical disposition and
identity. A total of 60 college students participated in
‘Lifestyle’ mathematical modeling project. Both qualitative and
quantitative methods were used for data collection and analysis. The
result from a paired-samples $t$-test showed the significant changes in
students’ mathematical disposition. The results from the analysis of
students’ written responses and interview data described how the
context of the modeling tasks and the collaborative group interplayed
with students’ perceived value.
