Mathematical Modeling in the Middle Grades

Workshop Description

Modeling with mathematics requires students to pose and explore real-world questions, identify and define relevant quantities, as well as test and revise mathematical models to answer these questions. In this one-day workshop, participants will discuss the modeling process and explore problems that engage middle grade students in mathematical modeling. 

This session will be offered three times in different locations throughout the state in January.  We hope you can join us!
