Mathematical modelling as a prototype for interdisciplinary mathematics education?-Theoretical reflections

Abstract

In the last years the discussion for promoting Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education became a central goal of educational policy in many countries worldwide, in an attempt to prepare students for a scientific and technological society. However, interdisciplinary mathematics teaching and learning is not limited to the "STE" and should include other disciplines across the curriculum. Mathematical modelling, as a mathematical practice and key competence within mathematics education standards could be interpreted as an excellent example for promoting not only modelling competencies, but also interdisciplinary mathematics education (IdME) in school. In this paper we focus theoretically on the question, 'Which core similarities and differences can be stated between the two fields along three perspectives?', by presenting a piece of theory describing the interplay between IdME and mathematical modelling.
