Summary Research has indicated that for teachers to facilitate mathematical modelling activities in the mathematics classroom, they need to be familiar with the process of mathematical modelling. As such, it is imperative that teachers experience the whole mathematical modelling process. This paper reports on a Multi-tiered Teaching Experiment designed to help a teacher develop his capacity in the domain of mathematical modelling. Drawing on part of a larger case-based study conducted using Design Research phases situated within the Multi-tiered Teaching Experiment framework, the purpose of this paper is to exemplify how the research design fostered growth in teacher capacity through the natural development of critical moments of learning by the teacher during interactions between the researchers and the teacher-modeller himself. The potential of the Multi-tiered Teaching Experiment as a useful non-prescriptive teacher development approach building upon the existing repertoire of individual teachers will be discussed.
