# THE EFFECTIVENESS OF MATHEMATICAL MODELING IN MATHEMATICS ACHIEVEMENT IN INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL STUDENTS AND THEIR ENGINEERING THINKING

## Abstract

The current research aims to know:

1- The effectiveness of mathematical modeling in mathematics achievement among middle school students.

2- The effectiveness of mathematical modeling in engineering thinking among middle school students.

In order to achieve the goal of the research, the researcher formulated the following null hypotheses:

- There is no statistically significant difference at the level of significance (0.05) between the mean scores of the experimental group students who study according to mathematical modeling and the average scores of the control group students who study according to the usual method in the achievement test for mathematics.
- There is no statistically significant difference at the level of significance (0.05) between the mean scores of the experimental group students who study according to mathematical modeling and the average scores of the control group students who study according to the usual method of the dimensional engineering thinking test.

The research community was destroyed from all the schools of the first intermediate grade students in Maysan Governorate, where the researcher applied the experiment. The Intermediate School for Outstanding Students was chosen for boys, in which there are three classes, for the first intermediate grade. Two classes were chosen randomly. They were distributed into two groups, one experimental and the other control.The researcher rewarded between the two groups in some variables, and the scientific material for the experiment included the fifth and sixth chapters of the mathematics textbook for the first intermediate grade approved for the 2018-2019 academic year. The researcher has two research tools, namely the achievement test and the engineering reasoning test. The results of the research showed that there is a statistically significant difference in the achievement test and in the dimensional engineering thinking test in favor of the experimental group.
