Progressive computer-supported modelling as a learner activity: A tool for understanding

Abstract

Recently, computer modelling has been added as a new topic in final examination programmes for physics and mathematics in the Netherlands. It involves constructing, running, evaluating, and extending simulation models. Currently, we are developing curriculum materials to support this new topic. In the course of our work, we became convinced that computer-supported modelling should be an integrated part of the curriculum from early on. Constructing a model involves identifying components, properties and relations. We will show how these activities could recur at multiple levels to support understanding in different phases of the curriculum, and how different computer modelling tools could support each phase.
