Mathematics: Modeling Our World (MMOW)  

New Second Edition

New Second Edition

Mathematics: Modeling Our World (MMOW), a grades 9-12 curriculum. This curriculum encourages students to learn and use mathematical tools to explore a broad range of real-world themes. MMOW units are constructed from contemporary contexts, and are arranged by context and application rather than mathematical topic. The student-centered curriculum materials use a discovery approach and promote collaborative learning and integration with other content areas.

Each course of the MMOW curriculum offers additional resources to supplement the textbook:

  • Annotated Teacher's Edition
  • Teacher’s Resources which contains:
    Teacher’s Guide
    Supplemental Activities
    Assessment Problems
  • Solutions Manual
  • CD-Rom with calculator and computer software written specifically for MMOW
  • Video with segments to accompany each unit

Statistical Modeling With SPSS  

Statistics and Mathematical Modeling at the graduate level. This text has been used to prepare students for the International Contest in Mathematical Modeling and for mini-courses for college and university faculty interested in innovating mathematical modeling programs. Statistical Modeling with SPSS was sponsored by the National Science Foundation. A distinguished advisory council and team of editors assisted with concepts and editorial suggestions throughout the book's development. They will be acknowledged at the conclusion of the preface.

Mathematical Modeling Handbook  

You need great materials to teach mathematical modeling as mandated by the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM). The Teachers College Mathematical Modeling Handbook is the ideal text to do just that.

Helping students develop a mathematical disposition encourages recognition of mathematical opportunities in everyday events. The TC Mathematical Modeling Handbook bolsters the CCSSM approach to interpret modeling not as a collection of isolated topics but in relation to the content standards. The Handbook provides modules containing teacher guides, student activities, possible solutions and natural classroom extensions for over 25 topics, together with references to specific modeling standards for which the topics may be appropriate.  Learn More

Mathematical Modeling Handbook II: The Assessments  

Mathematical Handbook II: The Assessments - What does it mean to be able to mathematically model successfully? Modeling has several aspects as we know from the structure of the modeling cycle. Moreover, performance-based assessments are difficult to construct and difficult to grade. This second Handbook represents our attempt to provide several alternate assessment modes for each of the original modules in Handbook I.  Learn More

Dynamic College Algebra (DynaMAP) 

Dynamic College Algebra uses a modeling approach built around applications from technical fields such as semiconductor manufacturing and biotechnology. Each chapter begins with an engaging contextual problem that students explore in class or on their own via an Adobe Air simulation. Reflecting the realities of modern technical careers, Dynamic College Algebra integrates data analysis and spreadsheet technology throughout.

 For All Practical Purposes    

New Tenth Edition

From the nature, to science and industry, to economics, finance, and politics, For All Practical Purposes uses both contemporary and classic examples to help students appreciate the use of math in their everyday lives. The book offers a series of independent chapters on high-interest topics, including business management, voting, and bar codes, with relevant and interesting applications central to the unfolding of each chapterís story. This format makes it easy for instructors to cover just the material they want to present, or even craft a custom version of the text.

This edition includes new features to help liberal arts students succeed in the course. It is accompanied by an exceptional variety of instructor resources, for both experienced teachers and those new to the liberal arts math course.

Mathematical Models with Applications  

An innovative course that offers students an exciting new perspective on mathematics, Mathematical Models with Applications explores the same types of problems that math professionals encounter daily. The modeling process--forming a theory, testing it, and revisiting it based on the results of the test--is critical for learning how to think mathematically. Demonstrating this ability can open up a wide range of educational and professional opportunities for students. Mathematical Models with Applications has been designed for students who have completed Algebra I or Geometry and see this as the final course in their high school mathematics sequence, or who would like additional math preparation before Algebra II.

College Algebra: Modeling Our World    

New CD-Rom Edition

College Algebra: Modeling Our World in the COMAP tradition, contemporary applications and mathematical modeling are presented in novel ways to help teach and motivate students. Throughout the text, students explore a number of essential concepts and develop important modeling, data analysis, and problem-solving skills necessary to prepare them for the future.

Developing Mathematics through Applications (DevMap) Project     

New CD-Rom Edition

Since the 1980s the "typical" college student profile has been changing as more non-traditional students have started their higher education later in life. Some students are entering their post-secondary education after a period of time in the work force, others after starting a family. Often students who have been away from school for extended lengths of time need to refresh and rebuild their mathematical skills and their confidence in their ability to solve challenging problems. Likewise, traditional students need to hone their mathematical skills to enter today's competitive job market. Developmental mathematics courses are offered as the first step in student success in mathematics-related programs.
Students in developmental mathematics courses are particularly in need of course materials that are written at an appropriate reading level and capture adults' interests. It is important to keep in mind that these students often bring with them life experiences, particularly from the workplace, that can be used to connect the mathematics taught in the classroom to their worlds. Yet many developmental mathematics programs simply present concepts and ask students to replicate the results while working through voluminous end-of-section exercises.
