Book Section Detail Page

written by David Hestenes
Mathematics has been described as the science of patterns. Natural science can be characterized as the investigation of patterns in nature. Central to both domains is the notion of model as a unit of coherently structured knowledge. Modeling Theory is concerned with models as basic structures in cognition as well as scientific knowledge. It maintains a sharp distinction between mental models that people think with and conceptual models that are publicly shared. This supports a view that cognition in science, math, and everyday life is basically about making and using mental models. We review and extend elements of Modeling Theory as a foundation for R&D in math and science education.
