Mathematical Modeling Handbooks I, II, and III were prepared at Teacher College Columbia University and published by the Consortium for Mathematics and its Applications [COMAP] to support the Common Core State Standards in mathematical modeling. Each of the three handbooks focuses on a specific aspect of modeling implementation: modeling content, evaluation of modeling performance, and planning modeling instruction.

Mathematical Modeling Handbook III: Lesson Paradigms

The authors of Handbook III approached the planning of mathematical modeling lessons with a broader brush than is customary for more commonplace topics from algebra and geometry. Traditional planning templates may be ill-suited to modeling instruction since the same modeling topic could be approached from many directions depending upon the capabilities of the students and the knowledge of the teacher. For example, the module entitled Unstable Table could be approached from an experimental standpoint with an actual table on an uneven floor or from a sophisticated, three dimensional geometric point of view.
