Abstract

4 This paper focuses on analyzing the potentialities of using a codisciplinary inquiry context to enhance the appearance of mathematical modelling in teaching and learning practices. We focus on an archaeological context where modelling becomes an essential tool to enquire into and progress on the study of questions emerged from the interplay between two main disciplines: Mathematics and History. We present the design, implementation and analysis of a teaching sequence based upon the ruins of a Roman theatre discovered in Badalona (Catalonia) to promote inquiry and modelling students' competences. The sequence was implemented in 2015 with 12 and 14-year-old students. The central question introduced (what kind of building could have been the discovered ruins) involved students in a reflective inquiry process that facilitate them to progress on modelling, at the time modelling facilitate that the inquiry process could follow.
