ABSTRACT
The aim of this study is to examine the views of primary school mathematics teachers on mathematical modelling. This study, in which phenomenological design has been used, has been conducted with the participation of 11 primary school mathematics teachers in Erzurum city center. The data of the study have been obtained via the semi-structured interviews made with the teachers and in-class observations made with four teachers following these interviews. Upon the analysis of the data, it has been found out that the teachers, who have been interviewed and observed in the class, do not have enough knowledge about the mathematical modelling; also confuse the concepts of model, modelling, mathematical model and mathematical modelling; and do not sufficiently use the mathematical modelling in their courses.
