Mathematical Modelling: Teaching and Assessment in a Technology-rich World

Horwood, 1998 - 344 páginas
This book contributes to the teaching, learning and assessing of mathematical modelling in an era of rapidly expanding technology. It addresses all levels of education from universities, colleges of technology, state and national departments, research groups, teacher training colleges and secondary schools.
The broad and versatile range of topics are classified in themes of application. There is discussion of issues and alternatives which improve the quality of education and which continue to attract attention, including examples of modelling in action. They encompass medical, engineering, social or sporting applications. The theme of technology dominates throughout. Applications feature the use of graphics calculators, spreadsheets, symbolic manipulator software, with special purpose programs as aids to mathematical processing, and to teaching. Examples of the use of mathematical models are given, and the role and purpose of modelling is examined from multinational usage.
