Event Description
Modeling WITH Mathematics: Middle School Grades 6-8 - VIRTUAL - Dee Crescitelli (2022-23) 
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 of this course 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 the book Teaching for Thinking

Participants who teach outside of Kentucky will need to purchase their own copy of Teaching for Thinking if they wish to participate in this course.
