Background To support the implementation of STEM education in schools, a series of STEM related professional development programmes is being organised for teachers. Major components of the professional development programmes to be provided are: (A) Learning, Teaching and Assessment; (B) Enriching Knowledge; and (C) Curriculum Planning. This course belongs to the component of 'Learning, Teaching and Assessment'.
Mathematical modelling is an important concept in the application of mathematics to simulate real-life scenarios, understand constraints, and suggest quantitative solution to authentic problems. The quantitative methods used in mathematical modelling are usually powerful tools, in particular, in STEM-related researches and projects. For this reason, the Mathematics Education Section organises this seminar to introduce the concepts of mathematical modelling so as to develop among students a solid foundation in applying mathematical knowledge and making connections between mathematics and real-life and STEM-related scenarios.  
Objective(s) To enhance participants’ understanding in mathematical modelling, and the use of which in promoting STEM Education. 
Programme Description (1) To introduce the concepts of mathematical modelling, and its connection with secondary Mathematics curriculum and STEM Education;
(2) To share the examples in the learning and teaching strategies of topics to include concepts of mathematical modelling in the Mathematics curriculum at both junior and senior secondary levels;
(3) To share the school experience in learning and teaching activities in mathematical modelling; and
(4) To introduce the resources for facilitating the learning and teaching of mathematical modelling.
