Mathematical Modeling Handbook
The Mathematical Modeling Handbook is intended to support the implementation
of the Common Core State Standards high school Mathematics Modeling
conceptual category. The CCSS document provides a brief description of mathematical
modeling accompanied by 22 star symbols (*) designating modeling
standards and standard clusters. The CCSS approach is to interpret modeling
“not as a collection of isolated topics but in relation to other standards.”
The goal of this Handbook is to aid teachers in implementing the CCSS approach
by helping students to develop a modeling disposition, that is, to encourage
recognition of mathematical opportunities in everyday events. The Handbook
provides lessons and teachers’ notes for thirty modeling topics together with
reference to specific CCSS starred standards for which the topics may be appropriate. Learn More

Mathematics: Modeling Our World (MMOW)
Course 1, 2 & 3
Based on feedback from users of the first edition, COMAP has completed a major revision of Courses 1-3, now available in both print and CD-ROM.
• Some chapters are completely rewritten (i.e., Pick a Winner and Landsat, which is now titled Scene from Above). Other chapters are streamlined while retaining the thematic, modeling approach.
• Most chapters are shorter. The revised Course 1 has a total of 57 Activities— a 39% reduction from first edition’s 93.
