Modeling WITH Mathematics: Middle School Grades 6-8
Course Description:

Modeling with mathematics is one of the most misunderstood Standards for Mathematical Practice, yet it is essential for ALL students to master.
Participants will
  • experience an instructional routine that builds students' capacity to make sense of models and to develop questions to ask themselves when modeling.
  • learn about designs for interaction that build opportunities for students to develop mathematical language and process the ideas and concepts of modeling.
**Please note: Participants who teach in Kentucky will receive a copy of a new book of routines for fostering mathematical reasoning (book being released late 2021) and other materials to support them in engaging students in mathematical modeling. Participants who teach outside of Kentucky will need to purchase their own book for this course. This event will be updated with the book title upon its release.
