Mathematical Modeling, that is linking mathematics to real world situations and problems, has become an important practice of the Common Core State Standards in the United States. Hence mathematics teachers must have a strong background with respect to different aspects of modeling and appropriate methods of how modeling can be taught. In our presentation, we will give concrete examples of how mathematical modeling can be efficiently taught and learned in primary school, in secondary schools and in teacher education, based on long-term practical experiences, on teaching/learning theories and on empirical research.
