The initiative will train more than 400 secondary school teachers. In addition to building teachers' capacity, we organize workshops and seminars for educators to share experience and practice.
As teachers’ development is considered as the facilitating factor of the promotion of students’ learning in mathematical modelling and its applications, it is set as one of the crucial goals of this proposed project. The expected learning outcomes for teachers include changes in attitudes, behaviors and skills for integrating mathematical modelling in teaching.
