This is an important resource for teachers of mathematical modeling. It offers a general framework for the fundamental ideas involved in both mathematical modeling and the enterprise of teaching it, and it sums up and explains the relevant empirical research. It contains concrete illustrations of classroom modeling activities and highlights several case studies of implementation of mathematical modeling in mathematics curricula. - Paul J.
