Abstract

Modeling has received a great deal of attention from mathematics educators in recent years: for example, the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics have identified it as one of eight core mathematical practices, and the 2016 APME yearbook is dedicated to the theme of modeling. The Models and Modeling Working Group has provided a venue for discussing and collaborating to execute research fundamental to this area since the first PME-NA conference in 1978. In convening this Working Group at PME-NA 38 we propose to lay the groundwork for a shared writing project, producing an edited volume on the research questions and opportunities around learning through modeling over extended (course-length) time periods.
