Course Category Field Proper Education
Course Objective
The aim of this lesson is to inform mathematics students teachers about mathematical modelling concept and modelling processes, to work on different modelling problems, to develop modelling problems, to inform about in-class modelling implementations, to develop modelling implementations, to examine and evaluate solution approaches and thought processes displayed by students who solve modelling problem. It is also aimed for mathematics students teachers to have knowledge and skill to develop and perform modelling implementations in their future professional lives in the light of the knowledge and experiences gained in this course.
Course Content

Mathematical modeling and problem solving; modeling and modeling process in mathematics teaching; modeling cycle process (identification of the problem, manipulation, prediction and verification), the steps of developing models; principles of developing models; the application of modeling tasks in mathematics classes and the role of the teacher; preparing mathematical modeling tasks and observing students' mathematical thinking processes.
