O que torna um problema de modelação interessante? Fontes de interesse situacional em problemas de modelação





interesse, problemas do mundo real, emoções, contexto, modelação, conceções de eficácia


Estudos anteriores mostram que os alunos possuem poucas competências de modelação e um dos motivos para isso pode estar relacionado com o pouco interesse em resolver problemas de modelação. Por conhecermos ainda pouco relativamente a fontes de interesse em problemas de modelação, desenvolvemos um estudo qualitativo que procura conhecer as fontes de interesse dos alunos em problemas de modelação. Definiram-se as seguintes questões de investigação: (1) Quais as fontes de interesse que os alunos referem para problemas de modelação? (2) A realização das tarefas influencia o interesse dos alunos por problemas de modelação e pelos contextos situacionais? Com esse propósito, apresentámos quatro problemas de modelação a 5 alunos do 9.° ano e solicitá­mos que os alunos ordenassem os problemas de acordo com o seu interesse e que justificassem essa ordenação antes e depois de terem resolvido os problemas. A análise qualitativa mostra duas fontes principais de interesse dos alunos: emoções relacionadas com o contexto do mundo real apresentado no problema e as conceções dos alunos sobre a sua eficácia. Os resultados sustentam a importância das emoções especificamente relacionadas com as tarefas e conceções de eficácia que têm sido discutidas na teoria de interesse e mostram o papel dos contextos do mundo real na ativação do interesse em problemas de modelação.
