Modeling approaches to the teaching and learning of mathematics encompass a wide range of theoretical and practical perspectives. Much research has focused on the teaching and learning with a single modeling task, such as a model-eliciting activity. This research has had some influence on US curriculum. However, for many years, I have been interested in moving beyond single modeling tasks to the design of model development sequences. In this seminar, I will discuss the design of one such sequence from upper secondary mathematics and present some findings (and challenges) about teaching such sequences. The on-going design and re-design of the tasks and the classroom implementation will be described, along with some conjectures about future directions for the use of design-based research to study the teaching of modeling in schools.
