Abstract The role of mathematics in our society has undergone a dramatic change in recent years. In general, however, mathmatics instruction in schools has not kept pace with this change. Here, we describe the activities and events with which the Felix Klein Center for Mathematics, in Kaiserslautern, has tried to address this deficit. We first look briefly at mathematical modeling and illustrate how it fits into mathematics instruction. We then present examples of various didactic activities.
