Abstract

The objective of this paper is to create modules for teaching mathematical modeling with Microsoft excel with the hope of making the study of mathematical modeling enjoyable at the same time hone the students’ mathematical expertise appealing to their creativity and inventiveness. 35 students took the modules in the second semester of school year 2008-2009. These modules were favorably evaluated by most of the students, administrators and mathematics faculty as either evidently or very evidently relevant, interesting and self-motivating and that it provided adequate practice exercises to enhance cognitive, psychomotor and affective aspects of the learning process. Majority of the students either agreed or strongly agreed that the classes were both enjoyable and informative.
