Measuring and Improving Student Mathematical Skills for Modeling
written by Ronald K. Thornton
edited by Ed van den Berg, Ton Ellermeijer, and Onne Slooten
The primary focus of this paper is on necessary pre- or co-requisite student knowledge needed to understand modeling and use it to solve problems. We discuss how student understanding of two such areas of knowledge, recognizing equations as functional relationships and vectors, can be evaluated using the Mathematical Modeling Conceptual Evaluation (MMCE). Methods to improve student learning in these areas are described (analytic modeling and Visualizer®) and preliminary student-learning research results for traditional and reform courses are presented.
