Conference Paper
Con base en los principios y fundamentos asociados con la perspectiva modelos y modelación, se reportan algunas competencias matemáticas que muestran estudiantes de bachillerato cuando, sin recibir instrucción previa para tal fin, enfrentan en grupos pequeños, y en condiciones naturales del salón de clases, situaciones problemáticas acerca de toma de decisiones. Se identifican los modelos que los estudiantes construyen y refinan al interactuar con las actividades y presentar y discutir sus ideas dentro de una comunidad de aprendizaje. ..PAT.-Unpublished Manuscript
