This paper is prompted by a recent call by the International Commission on Mathematical Instruction (ICMI) for the study of mathematical modeling as technology-enhanced didactic inquiry into relations between mathematics and the real world. It reflects on activities designed for a teacher education course that focuses on the computer spreadsheet as a tool for concept development through situated mathematical problem solving. Modeling activities described in this paper support the epistemological position regarding the interplay that exists between the development of mathematical concepts and available methods of calculation. The spreadsheet used is Microsoft Excel 2001.
