The relationship between Big Data and Mathematical Modeling: A discussion in a mathematical education scenario

Rodrigo Dalla Vecchia


This study discusses aspects of the association between Mathematical Modeling (MM) and Big Data in the scope of mathematical education. We present an example of an activity to discuss two ontological factors that involve MM. The first is linked to the modeling stages. The second involves the idea of pedagogical objectives. The main findings indicate that Big Data may contribute new ways of working with MM in the classroom, helping develop pedagogical objectives associated with the ability to deal with and interpret digital media.
