Designing Mathematical Modelling Tasks In A Technology Rich Secondary School Context, Vincent Geiger, Trevor Redmond

Faculty of Education and Arts Publications

The potential of digital tools to enhance student learning is well researched, however, the potential of technology to promote students’ engagement with mathematical modelling tasks has received limited consideration. This paper draws on a research study that aimed to investigate the possibilities that exist for student learning when teachers from six secondary schools designed tasks that anticipated for the use of digital tools within mathematical modelling tasks. The paper describes and analyses the collaboration which took place in identifying principles of design for such tasks.
