Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to examine the possibility of introducing the teaching of mathematical modelling to the secondary school cumculum in Singapore. As well, the benefits of teaching and learning mathematical modelling are discussed. Examples to illustrate the process of mathematical modelling using only basic mathematical ideas and concepts are presented. These serve to illustrate that school mathematics can be used to provide experiences of the process of mathematical modelling in the classroom. Some implications on the teaching and learning of mathematics using such an approach are examined and discussed.
