Engaging Students in Mathematical Modeling

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 elementary and middle grade students in mathematical modeling. 

This session is offered in both in-person and live virtual settings.
