Mathematical modelling means:
2
Mathematical modelling
“Mathematical models and modelling are everywhere around us.”
“Preparing students’ for responsible citizenship and for participation in
societal developments requires them to build up modelling competency.”
“The teaching and learning mathematical modelling activity can improve
students’ mathematical modelling competency.”
3
Learning environments through modelling
Significant learning experiences must represent students’ interests,
characteristics and backgrounds without exception.
4
Addressing equity from mathematical modelling
teaching
“The principles of inclusion and equity are, then, not only about ensuring access to
education, but also about having quality learning spaces and pedagogies that
enable students to thrive, to understand their realities, and to work for a more just
society.” (UNESCO, 2017, p. 19)
Reflecting where is mathematics education and research standing in terms of
equity is quite relevant to realize how it addresses inclusiveness issues and
gender perspectives, seeking an equitable engagement of every student in the
learning of mathematics.
5
Objective
Provide a comprehensive reasoning of mathematics educational research
works, focusing on those from a mathematical modelling standpoint, and
how they undertake equity.
When equity applies to participation and involvement in Science, Technology,
Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields, calls for a deep analysis of
underrepresented groups in these areas, alongside the establishment of
policies that guide concrete actions (UNESCO, 2017).
6
Methodology: Systematic literature review
“Systematic reviews are a type of scientific research that aims to integrate in an
objective and systematic manner the results of empirical studies on a particular
research problem in order to determine the state of the question in its field of
study.“ (Ferreras-Fernández, Martín-Rodero, García-Peñalvo & Merlo-Vega, 2016)

Methodology: Analysis of articles
Guiding questions
How do authors address…
● math modelling/world mathematization?
● gender issues?
● equity?
● inclusiveness?
11
Math modelling/world mathematization I
- Is found related to student-centered approaches as relevant pedagogical aspects
behind modelling like concept-based learning, life mathematization through divergent
and disruptive thinking, creativity and collaborative learning (Luria, Sriraman & Kaufman,
2017) as well as spatial reasoning skills (Lowrie & Jorgensen, 2018).
- Modelling and problem-solving processes are also addressed in relation to the
development of citizenship and mathematical competencies (Zhu, 2018).
Frameworks for the assessment of such competencies "subsume various mathematical
activities that define mathematical literacy; they might include mathematising, arguing,
proving, and problem solving, among others, under one broad psychological construct"
(Nortvedt & Buchholtz, 2018, p. 559).
- Opportunities for curriculum linkage with values presented are proposed -eg.
contextualization of word problems by relating them with real life social issues
discussion, implementing democratic strategies for mathematical education for life,
bringing up human values such as equity (Movshovitz-Hadar & Yael Edri, 2015). 12
Math modelling/world mathematization II
- Mathematical sense-making processes are related to authority-construction in the
classroom, leading to identity development and empowerment of marginalized subjects
(Langer-Osuna, 2017).
- In collaborative mathematics classrooms, like the ones promoted by mathematical
modelling activities, students and teachers share intellectual authority, allowing students to
take ownership of their ideas. This leads to greater conceptual understanding by taking part of
making ideas up, decision-making, justification and assessment of reasonable or "correct"
thoughts (Cantley, Prendergas & Schlindwein, 2017; Langer-Osuna, 2017).
- Also seen as the application of mathematics for "making a better world". These meaningful
applications structure practices and discourses for identity construction, possibly related to
motives and meanings about being a mathematician (particularly a female mathematician one
- gender related) (Solomon, Radovic & Black, 2016; Cantley, Prendergas & Schlindwein, 2017).
The development of mathematical talented women is proposed to be studied with
socioepistemological perspectives (Farfán Márquez & Simón Ramos, 2018).
13
Gender issues I
- Girls are considered a historically marginalized group that experiences biases and are in
need to mathematical empowerment. Relations of authority in mathematics
classrooms might explain why student interactions become gendered
(Langer-Osuna, 2017; Farfán Márquez & Simón Ramos, 2018)
- Social structures embedded in traditional teaching practices could promote
contradictions about gender roles. These become resources and motives for
improvisation, leading to resignification about what it is to do mathematics (Alcock,
Attridge, Kenny & Inglis, 2014; Solomon, Radovic & Black, 2016; Deward, 2017) and
encouraging new inclusive pedagogies -eg. STEAM approaches- (Montero &
Jormanainen, 2017)
- Differences among definitions and implications of the use of "gender" and "sex"
terminologies are also discussed (Zhu, 2018).
14
Gender issues II
- Gender is considered to be a factor that influences inequitable opportunities and
outcomes in education, as well as the most used indicator for the assessment of
equitable education (Lowrie & Jorgensen, 2018; Nortvedt & Buchholtz, 2018; Zhu, 2018).
- There is a call for an assessment that can be culturally responsive so that it
addresses heterogeneity and balances equity issues with educational policy -eg.
personality and learning styles- (Nortvedt & Buchholtz, 2018)
15
Equity and inclusiveness
- Dilemmas between concepts of "equity" and "equality", based on
axiological roots and implicating the need of a common ground and
framework.
- When feminist pedagogies are used as framework, equity manifests in a
precedent form, which highlights the role and experience of a
marginalized counterpart.
- Possible causes for unequal participation of genders in the mathematics
professional development: 1) Lack of role models, 2) Gendered
preferences and teaching approaches , 3) Gendered nature of
mathematics, 4) indirect influence of cultural discourses that associate
mathematics with masculinity, 5) Socially constructed gender stereotypes.

Equity and inclusiveness
- Dilemmas between concepts of "equity" and "equality", based on
axiological roots and implicating the need of a common ground and
framework.
- When feminist pedagogies are used as framework, equity manifests in a
precedent form, which highlights the role and experience of a
marginalized counterpart not promoting inclusiveness at all.
- Possible causes for unequal participation of genders in the mathematics
professional development: 1) Lack of role models, 2) Gendered
preferences and teaching approaches , 3) Gendered nature of
mathematics, 4) indirect influence of cultural discourses that associate
mathematics with masculinity, 5) Socially constructed gender stereotypes.
17
Results
There exist alternatives to incorporate the teaching of social values like equity
and inclusiveness to the education of mathematics, particularly through
modelling activities. However, these relationship are yet waiting to be deeply
explored.
Each work part of this systematic literature review open just a narrow window
of analysis and understanding of equity in mathematics education, a call for
collaborative academic action is suggested.

Equity in mathematical modelling education: a literature review

  • 1. Equity in mathematical modelling education: A literature review Angeles Dominguez Itzel H. Armenta 1 1,2 1 1. Tecnologico de Monterrey, Mexico 2. Universidad Andres Bello, Chile Session 6 Socio-cultural influence July 25th, 2019
  • 3. Mathematical modelling “Mathematical models and modelling are everywhere around us.” “Preparing students’ for responsible citizenship and for participation in societal developments requires them to build up modelling competency.” “The teaching and learning mathematical modelling activity can improve students’ mathematical modelling competency.” 3
  • 4. Learning environments through modelling Significant learning experiences must represent students’ interests, characteristics and backgrounds without exception. 4
  • 5. Addressing equity from mathematical modelling teaching “The principles of inclusion and equity are, then, not only about ensuring access to education, but also about having quality learning spaces and pedagogies that enable students to thrive, to understand their realities, and to work for a more just society.” (UNESCO, 2017, p. 19) Reflecting where is mathematics education and research standing in terms of equity is quite relevant to realize how it addresses inclusiveness issues and gender perspectives, seeking an equitable engagement of every student in the learning of mathematics. 5
  • 6. Objective Provide a comprehensive reasoning of mathematics educational research works, focusing on those from a mathematical modelling standpoint, and how they undertake equity. When equity applies to participation and involvement in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields, calls for a deep analysis of underrepresented groups in these areas, alongside the establishment of policies that guide concrete actions (UNESCO, 2017). 6
  • 7. Methodology: Systematic literature review “Systematic reviews are a type of scientific research that aims to integrate in an objective and systematic manner the results of empirical studies on a particular research problem in order to determine the state of the question in its field of study.“ (Ferreras-Fernández, Martín-Rodero, García-Peñalvo & Merlo-Vega, 2016) Revision of published material in the last five years and found at the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI) Digital Library Project, the ICTMA book series International Perspectives on the Teaching and Learning of Mathematical Modelling, and top-grade databases (Scopus and Web of Science) 7

  • 11. Methodology: Analysis of articles Guiding questions How do authors address… ● math modelling/world mathematization? ● gender issues? ● equity? ● inclusiveness? 11
  • 12. Math modelling/world mathematization I - Is found related to student-centered approaches as relevant pedagogical aspects behind modelling like concept-based learning, life mathematization through divergent and disruptive thinking, creativity and collaborative learning (Luria, Sriraman & Kaufman, 2017) as well as spatial reasoning skills (Lowrie & Jorgensen, 2018). - Modelling and problem-solving processes are also addressed in relation to the development of citizenship and mathematical competencies (Zhu, 2018). Frameworks for the assessment of such competencies "subsume various mathematical activities that define mathematical literacy; they might include mathematising, arguing, proving, and problem solving, among others, under one broad psychological construct" (Nortvedt & Buchholtz, 2018, p. 559). - Opportunities for curriculum linkage with values presented are proposed -eg. contextualization of word problems by relating them with real life social issues discussion, implementing democratic strategies for mathematical education for life, bringing up human values such as equity (Movshovitz-Hadar & Yael Edri, 2015). 12
  • 13. Math modelling/world mathematization II - Mathematical sense-making processes are related to authority-construction in the classroom, leading to identity development and empowerment of marginalized subjects (Langer-Osuna, 2017). - In collaborative mathematics classrooms, like the ones promoted by mathematical modelling activities, students and teachers share intellectual authority, allowing students to take ownership of their ideas. This leads to greater conceptual understanding by taking part of making ideas up, decision-making, justification and assessment of reasonable or "correct" thoughts (Cantley, Prendergas & Schlindwein, 2017; Langer-Osuna, 2017). - Also seen as the application of mathematics for "making a better world". These meaningful applications structure practices and discourses for identity construction, possibly related to motives and meanings about being a mathematician (particularly a female mathematician one - gender related) (Solomon, Radovic & Black, 2016; Cantley, Prendergas & Schlindwein, 2017). The development of mathematical talented women is proposed to be studied with socioepistemological perspectives (Farfán Márquez & Simón Ramos, 2018). 13
  • 14. Gender issues I - Girls are considered a historically marginalized group that experiences biases and are in need to mathematical empowerment. Relations of authority in mathematics classrooms might explain why student interactions become gendered (Langer-Osuna, 2017; Farfán Márquez & Simón Ramos, 2018) - Social structures embedded in traditional teaching practices could promote contradictions about gender roles. These become resources and motives for improvisation, leading to resignification about what it is to do mathematics (Alcock, Attridge, Kenny & Inglis, 2014; Solomon, Radovic & Black, 2016; Deward, 2017) and encouraging new inclusive pedagogies -eg. STEAM approaches- (Montero & Jormanainen, 2017) - Differences among definitions and implications of the use of "gender" and "sex" terminologies are also discussed (Zhu, 2018). 14
  • 15. Gender issues II - Gender is considered to be a factor that influences inequitable opportunities and outcomes in education, as well as the most used indicator for the assessment of equitable education (Lowrie & Jorgensen, 2018; Nortvedt & Buchholtz, 2018; Zhu, 2018). - There is a call for an assessment that can be culturally responsive so that it addresses heterogeneity and balances equity issues with educational policy -eg. personality and learning styles- (Nortvedt & Buchholtz, 2018) 15
  • 16. Equity and inclusiveness - Dilemmas between concepts of "equity" and "equality", based on axiological roots and implicating the need of a common ground and framework. - When feminist pedagogies are used as framework, equity manifests in a precedent form, which highlights the role and experience of a marginalized counterpart. - Possible causes for unequal participation of genders in the mathematics professional development: 1) Lack of role models, 2) Gendered preferences and teaching approaches , 3) Gendered nature of mathematics, 4) indirect influence of cultural discourses that associate mathematics with masculinity, 5) Socially constructed gender stereotypes. 16
  • 17. Equity and inclusiveness - Dilemmas between concepts of "equity" and "equality", based on axiological roots and implicating the need of a common ground and framework. - When feminist pedagogies are used as framework, equity manifests in a precedent form, which highlights the role and experience of a marginalized counterpart not promoting inclusiveness at all. - Possible causes for unequal participation of genders in the mathematics professional development: 1) Lack of role models, 2) Gendered preferences and teaching approaches , 3) Gendered nature of mathematics, 4) indirect influence of cultural discourses that associate mathematics with masculinity, 5) Socially constructed gender stereotypes. 17
  • 18. Results There exist alternatives to incorporate the teaching of social values like equity and inclusiveness to the education of mathematics, particularly through modelling activities. However, these relationship are yet waiting to be deeply explored. Each work part of this systematic literature review open just a narrow window of analysis and understanding of equity in mathematics education, a call for collaborative academic action is suggested. 18
