Mental models provide us with a framework for understanding Models-Based Science Teaching (MBST), as well as some of the tenets and limitations of science suggested by philosophers of science. This chapter is background reading for anyone who wants to use MBST. It will provide you with the models and the language you need to use MBST effectively in the classroom. In this chapter the author will put learning, and then science, in a models context with the goal of understanding.
