Kaiser, G. (ed.) et al., Trends in teaching and learning of mathematical modelling. Proceedings of the 14th international conference on the teaching of mathematical modelling and applications, ICTMA, Hamburg, Germany, July 27‒31, 2009. Berlin: Springer (ISBN 978-94-007-0909-6/hbk; 978-94-007-0910-2/ebook). International Perspectives on the Teaching and Learning of Mathematical Modelling 1, 279-288 (2011).
Summary: Views of mathematics teachers about tasks with modelling relevance are likely to influence the ways teachers create learning opportunities in the classroom. As quantitative empirical evidence about such task-related views is scarce, this chapter reports on corresponding findings. In particular, views of prospective and in-service teachers are compared and possibilities of improving professional knowledge are identified.
