Models and Modeling Perspectives by Richard A. Lesh
Book DescriptionThis special issue of Mathematical Thinking and Learning describes models and modeling perspectives toward mathematics problem solving, learning, and teaching. The concern is not only the mature forms of models and modeling in communities of scientists and mathematicians, but also the need to initiate students in these forms of thought. The contributions of this issue suggest a variety of ways that students (children through adults) can be introduced to highly productive forms of modeling practices. Collectively, they illustrate how modeling activities often lead to remarkable mathematical achievements by students formerly judged to be too young or too lacking in ability for such sophisticated and powerful forms of mathematical thinking. The papers also illustrate how modeling activities often create productive interdisciplinary niches for mathematical thinking, learning, and problem solving that involve simulations of similar situations that occur when mathematics is useful beyond school.

Books By Author Richard A. Lesh
Handbook of Design Research Methods in Education, Paperback (June 2008)
Presents the various thinking and examples of design research in education. This book contains chapters that represent an array of interpretations and examples of how design researchers conceptualize this emergent methodology across areas as diverse as educational leadership, diffusion of innovations, complexity theory, and curriculum research.
Beyond Constructivism, Paperback (June 2003)
This text has two main goals. On the level of theory development, it seeks to clarify emerging models about teaching, learning and problem-solving in maths. On the level of practical problems, it seeks to clarify the nature of important mathematical or scientific understandings and abilities.
Handbook of Research Design in Mathematics and Science Education, Hardback (May 2000)» View all books by Richard A. Lesh
This text is based on results from an NSF-supported project aimed at clarifying the nature of principles that govern the effective use of merging research designs in mathematics and science education. It emphazises research designs intended to increase the relevance of research to practice.
