What is Modeling and Why Should We Teach It?

November 13 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

$309.00

**SOLD OUT**

The Math Institute is excited to have Dr. Jason Zimba, a Founding Partner of Student Achievement Partners and a lead writer of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, here to lead a workshop for K-12 Wisconsin educators and math leaders.

In this active workshop, you will learn what the standards’ vision is for mathematical modeling. You will gain some practical wisdom for enhancing the modeling work students do in K-5, 6-8, and 9-12, and you will walk away prepared to advocate for richer modeling in your school or district.

Through the generosity of the Brookhill Foundation, this is the inaugural event for a three-year collaboration with Student Achievement Partners, a nonprofit dedicated to significantly impacting literacy and mathematics outcomes for K-12 students nationally, with a particular focus on accelerating academic progress for students who face barriers of racism or poverty.

Goals:

  • Increased understanding of modeling as intended in standards
  • Increased interest and desire to enhance modeling in your classroom, school, or district
  • Increased access to quality resources for mathematical modeling
