ab: Summary: This study contributes a methodological tool to reconstruct the
cognitive processes and mathematical activities carried out by
mathematical modelers. Represented as Modeling Transition Diagrams
(MTDs), individual modeling routes were constructed for four
engineering undergraduate students. Findings stress the importance and
limitations of using micro-analysis to examine modeling processes. The
findings and the MTDs were used to critically question the implications
of using modeling cycles as a theory of mathematical modeling
processes.
