ENROLLMENT OPENS Jan. 17, 2021 – STREAM: Making Sense of Modeling HS (Feb. 7-28, 2021)

During this module, you will learn about facets of mathematical modeling instruction and assessment in high school. Specific goals and activities include the following:

  • Recognize competing conceptions for the term “modeling”, understand the MCSM definition of modeling and the six components of the modeling cycle, and rate modeling prompts on a scale from weak to strong,
  • Engage in a mathematical modeling activity in Algebra I, Geometry or Algebra II, and,
  • Understand best practices for assessment in mathematical modeling and apply an assessment rubric to student work.
