Abstract

Abstract. The article deals with the the state of applying the modelling method in training future Natural Sciences teachers. The peculiarities of modelling and forecasting as methods of teaching and research activity in training future Natural Sciences teachers (Biology, Ecology, Chemistry, Natural Sciences) are explored. The expediency of their application as means of introduction into the educational process the principle of "learning through research", which ensures the organization of educational process on the basis of research activities and the involvement of students in scientific work is substantiated. Examples of using ecological and mathematical modelling tools in the organization of education and scientific work of postgraduate students in the field of 014 Secondary Education, Biology, Natural Sciences, 101 Ecology and Rational Use of Natural Environment are provided. Modelling the state and forecasting the development of hydroecosystems by means of fuzzy sets on the basis of input and output parameters, presented both quantitatively and qualitatively, are highlighted. Forecasting the development of ecosystems is realised based on the theory of stochastic processes  and the theory of chains by Markov tools usage. The method of developing students' competence to use ecological-mathematical modeling is offered. It involves a combination of students' academic and research activities, their classroom and independent work. A list of the disciplines in which it is expedient to familiarize students with the indicated method is singled out. The mentioned methodology enables integration of biological, ecological and mathematical disciplines and information technologies in the complex study of natural processes. It stimulated the development of master students’ ability to integrate the perception (vision) of environmental problems, the formation of strategic research skills. Keywords: teacher training, integration, tools, modelling, forecasting.
