Raising a Generation of Mathematical Modelers
Friday Morning Keynote
How do we help students in prekindergarten through grade 12 become better modelers when we have so much more that needs to be part of school mathematics? We’re going to be real about how we can build students’ capacity to delve in the messy, challenging, time-consuming yet wonderful real world of mathematical modeling. We’ll hit all grade and age levels as we enhance everyday mathematics lessons in both small and large ways to prepare modelers yet keep content and practices on track.
