Leveraging Dynamically Linked Representations in a Semi-Structured Workspace to Cultivate Mathematical Modeling Competencies Among Secondary Students (M2Studio)
The need for mathematical modeling is vital in answering critical questions like disease spread and climate change, but beginners lack the necessary skills to plan, organize, and execute such tasks. Also, current tools are insufficient for optimal learning. To address these issues, we're developing a web-based technology (M2Studio) and a 10.5-hour curriculum to introduce students to mathematical modeling using dynamically linked representations. This three-year project aims to enhance students' modeling skills and understanding.
