Abstract

Despite the interest in modeling and the importance of social justice, there has not been much attention to connecting modeling with social justice. To fill this gap, we developed criteria for mathematical modeling problems that embrace the characteristics of problems and social justice through three phases: literature analysis, thematic categories, and piloting. The criteria will help teacher educators when selecting modeling problems to be used in teacher preparation programs and assessing the modeling problems posed by PSTs.
