Research Abstract: 

This paper suggests a model for teaching and learning mathematics which is based on mathematical phenomenon and on three blended means: technological pedagogical models, representations of mathematical content, and learning contexts. This model moves the student towards deep mathematical learning because of the rich mathematical representations and technological pedagogical tools. Students are motivated to learn mathematics because of the diverse contexts in which they learn (formal, authentic, historical, and virtual) and which add fun to mathematics learning. In the paper, an example is given on how to realize the model in preparing a teaching unit on the golden ratio.
