    Product Description
    Susan Jo Russell, Deborah Schifter, and Virginia Bastable  


    The Modeling with Data Casebook was developed as the key resource for participants’ Developing Mathematical Ideas seminar experience. The twenty-eight cases, written by teachers describing real situations and actual student thinking in their classrooms, provide the basis of each session’s exploration of using data to model real-world contexts by collecting, representing, describing, and interpreting data.

    Reading and discussing the cases under the guidance of the facilitator actively engages participants in their own learning enterprise as they—

      • learn to recognize the key mathematical ideas with which students are grappling;

          • consider the types of classroom settings and teaching strategies that support the development of student understanding;

              • become aware of how core mathematical ideas develop across the grades;

                  • work on mathematical concepts and gain better understanding of mathematical content;

                      • deepen their own understanding of the Common Core standards for mathematical practice and how to engage their students in them; and

                          • discover how to continue learning about children and mathematics.

                            The casebook is composed of eight chapters: the first seven consist of classroom cases spanning the elementary grades; chapter 8 is an essay providing an overview of the research related to the situations described in the first seven chapters. The chapters are as follows:
