Mathematical modelling: providing valid description or lost in translation. (English)
Barmby, P. (ed.), Proceedings of the British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics (BSRLM). Vol. 34, No. 1. Proceedings of the day conference, King’s College, London, UK, March 1, 2014. London: British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics (BSRLM). 31-36 (2014).
Summary: With a focus on ‘translation’, we will discuss elements of a language of description that captures a range of strategies and criteria deployed in setting up a mathematical model and demonstrate its usefulness for analysing and evaluating school mathematical modelling activities. We see this as part of a larger project of exploring mathematical modelling and its re-contextualisation in school mathematics.
