Our Mathematical Modeling Handbook supports the implementation of Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) in high schools. It's the perfect companion for bringing math modeling concepts into your classroom.
Here are a few of the benefits you can expect when you add the Mathematical Modeling Handbook to your curriculum.
1. Get the Materials You Need to Teach Mathematical Modeling
The 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.
2. Focus on Three Key Aspects of Math Modeling Implementation
Each of the three handbooks focuses on a specific aspect of modeling implementation: modeling content, evaluation of modeling performance, and planning modeling instruction.
3. Help Students Develop a Modeling Mindset
Math modeling is most effective when interpreted not as a collection of isolated topics but in relation to other standards. The goal of our handbooks are to encourage recognition of mathematical opportunities in everyday events, so students can benefit from a math modeling mindset in and out of the classroom.
Our handbooks are available in both print and CD-ROM formats. Here are ways you can purchase:
