First results with respect to teaching modelling are presented from Australian data collected as part of an international study of pre-service mathematics teachers, Competencies of Future Mathematics Teachers. Data were collected from 73 volunteer pre-service secondary mathematics teachers from six cohorts at five university sites in three Australian states. Questionnaire responses targeting affinity of pre-service teachers by using modelling tasks in Years 8–10 are analysed from the perspective of possible differences associated with the length of teacher preparation program being undertaken.
