Mathematical Modeling

  • The Modeling constributes significantly to reflections (Biembengut et Hein, 2000) ;
  • The Modeling provides a learning environment based on research (Biembengut et Hein, 2000);
  • The Modeling requires mathematical and technological knowledges to construct the model (Skovsmose, 1998) .


Simulators can take many forms and can  present in differents fields of knowledge (Jonassen, 1996).
Simulators should be:
  • Exploratory learning environments;
  • Spaces of discovery where students can manipulate, explore and experiment, developing their skills and of the discovery of the simulated world objects.
