    In the plenary panel session of the conference two topics were discussed: the role of contexts in mathematics education and the role of models. This contribution discusses the role of context situations and models within a learning trajectory. The examples are chosen from the learning of fractions. Sharing food is a context that will stimulate students to explore the relations between simple fractions. Asking students to draw thesharing situation can be used to develop the model of the fraction bar. Models play a mediating role between the concrete context problem and formal reasoning. Keywords : context problems, model, emergent modelling, fractions.
