Paper presented at the 32nd Annual Conference of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia Incorporated (MERGA 2009) on "Crossing divides", Wellington, New Zealand, 5 – 9 July 2009
Abstract: 
This paper reports mathematical and real world knowledge application by lower secondary students
(aged 13-14 years) in a design-based interdisciplinary project with mathematics, science, and geography
as anchor subjects implemented in Singapore1. Key findings from two mathematical tasks attempted by
10 case-study groups during the project reveal that whilst students displayed taught knowledge and skill,
they lacked in-depth understanding of the use and purpose of scale drawings. There was also limited
activation of real-world knowledge during mathematical decision making and little monitoring of
accuracy and reasonableness of mathematical results.
