Title: Mathematical Modelling and Didactics Sequences: a relationship of complementarity
Author: Borges, PAP
Nehring, CM
Abstract: The mathematical modelling has been presented in literature as an efficient way of contextualizing of elementary mathematical concepts, and as a possibility to the students living a researcher experience. But its use as a mathematic teaching method still presents questions to be explained from the educational point of view. This article analyses two kinds of use of modelling on the teaching, and treats the possible teaching results: as a part of a didactic sequence and as a didactic sequence generated from a real problem. The conclusions consider that the teaching resultant of didactic sequences of modelling is: an integrator of concepts and develops the ability to associate the mathematical concepts to the real situations; the teaching is, in a general analysis, incomplete when relationed to the learning of planned contents, needing other didactics sequences; and the modelling, when is complemented with didactic sequences, contributes to a more significant learning, without losing its characteristic of investigation of problems.
