Missing the Promise Of Mathematical Modeling

    Textbooks offer some opportunities to practice modeling, but we can do more for students to experience where mathematics and science meet.
    The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) have exerted enormous pressure on every participant in a child's education. Students are struggling to meet new standards for mathematics learning, and parents are struggling to understand how to help them. Teachers are growing in their capacity to develop new mathematical competencies, and administrators are growing in their capacity to support them.
