Math Modeling: The Power of Us!  (Sold out!)

Date: Wednesday, October 25, 2023 

In this workshop, participants will engage in the mathematical modeling process through a common task. Participants will work collaboratively as they reflect on how this engagement can offer opportunities to build students’ math identity and agency across grade bands.  

Goal: Provide strategies to support the development of mathematics teachers as teachers of modeling 

Outcomes: Participants will 

  • Engage in the components of the mathematical modeling process
  • Develop strategies for teaching modeling 
  • Use math modeling as a vehicle for promoting math identity and fostering curiosity in collaborative group settings. 

Facilitators: Jennifer Suh, Maria Hernandez, Ben Galluzzo, Karen Bryant
