Abstract

This paper deals with applying a description of a set of mathematical competencies with the aim of developing mathematics education in general and in particular the work with mathematical modelling. Hence it offers a presentation of the general idea of working with mathemati­cal competencies as well as an analysis of some potentials of putting this idea into educational practice. Three challenges form the basis of the analysis: The fight against syllabusitis, the dilemma of teaching directed autonomy and the description of progress in mathematical modelling competency.
