[abstract/özet]

The project was supported by the Turkish Scientific and Technical Research Institution (TUBITAK) to study role of mathematical modeling in pre-service and in-service (secondary) mathematics teacher education. The purpose of this project was threefold: (i) to develop mathematical modeling tasks and activities that can be used with both secondary school students and pre-service and in-service teacher education programs; (ii) to develop an in-service mathematics teacher professional development program about mathematical modeling and to investigate how the program would affect teachers’ beliefs, knowledge and practices; (iii) to develop an academic course for pre-service mathematics teachers and investigate how the course would affect pre-service teachers’ knowledge, competencies and attitudes in terms of mathematics, mathematical modeling and using mathematical modeling in mathematics education.
