How to support student in applying the mathematical modelling (MM) process is an ongoing line of research enquiry. This chapter outlines interim findings from an Australian national project that aims to promote effective teaching and learning practices in MM through attention to implemented anticipation. This effort gained focus through attention to the generation of a Design and Implementation Framework for Modelling Tasks (DIFMT). The DIFMT was the result of collaboration between teachers and researchers aimed at the effective design and implementation of MM tasks in upper secondary classrooms. The study suggests that specific pedagogical practices can act as enablers of students’ attempts to appropriate the process of MM.
