Abstract: The mathematical process Application and Modelling has just been factored into the new mathematics curriculum. Its implication is that even children should now be involved
in works of mathematical modelling. Mathematical modelling is deliberated upon in this paper with a view towards supporting the new math curriculum. An example of pupils' development of a problem representation in this paper shows evidence of their mathematizing towards a real-world solution. The use of model-eliciting activities holds promise in surfacing
children's mathematical thinking and problem-solving processes as well as in helping them
move beyond primitive ways of thinking.
