Teaching Mathematics and Statistics in Sciences: Modeling and Computer-aided Approach
This presentation proposes modeling based learning as a tool for learning and teaching mathematics.
In this presentation we introduce modeling process to students in a belief that it could contribute toward a better understanding of learning and teaching mathematics.
Goals of modeling are
Thousands of people living near the Fukushima nuclear power plant have been ordered to evacuate.
An earthquake is the sudden release of energy in the form of vibrations caused by rock suddenly moving along fault lines.
How many times more intense was The Indian Ocean earthquake (2004) with a Richter magnitude of 9.3 than The Great East Japan earthquake (2011) with magnitude 9.0?
where I is the intensity of the earthquake (measured by the amplitude of a seismograph reading taken 100 km from the epicenter of the earthquake) and S is the intensity of a ''standard earthquake'‘
(whose amplitude is 1 micron =10-4 cm).
The act of creating a model forces students to think deeply about the problem. Translating an imprecise, complex, multivariate real-world situation into a simpler, more clearly defined mathematical structure such as a function or a system of rules for a simulation, yields several benefits.
This teaching method tolerate different kinds of activities such as research every day situation, using computers and organizing the learning process close fitting to contemporary students and their field of interests
