3-Act Tasks: Filling the Void of Mathematical Modeling in the Elementary Grades
Presented by Graham Fletcher
As elementary educators, we’ve misinterpreted the term model as simply the use of manipulatives. This is causing our students to miss the mark when it comes to modeling with mathematics. Through the use of 3-Act tasks, we’ll explore what mathematical modeling is, what it looks like, and how we can support this work in our elementary classrooms.
