Mathematical Modelling for Teachers

Mathematical Modelling for Teachers: A practical guide to applicable mathematics education.

Abstract: This project came about after a number of EPISTEM staff along with a colleague from the School of Education (UL) were invited by an academic from the University of Linz, Austria to develop a book for English speaking secondary teachers detailing pedagogical considerations and examples that could be used when teaching mathematical modelling. This book is currently in press with Springer.
