Engaging Students through Authentic Mathematical Modeling ›
Many mathematical organizations including NCTM have challenged the mathematical community about the importance of mathematical modeling to a much greater extent than in the past. This session will highlight the key aspect of mathematical modeling by embedding tasks in the real world via multimedia in such a way that students first need to formulate the problem themselves. Once the problem is solved, students move back into the real world where the results are analyzed in context. It is through such genuine modeling tasks that students will be more engaged in their learning and become more proficient at problem solving.

On-Demand Kathy Swan - The Wizard of Inquiry: Finding your own ruby red slippers ›
To unlock the mystery of inquiry one must go on an arduous journey….Only the truly gifted educator will be able to complete this odyssey. Hyperbole aside, social studies teachers might be experiencing fatigue as inquiry teaching and learning can sometimes be made to seem akin to reaching educational enlightenment. But, experience shows us that inquiry is how we learn best. Rather than thinking of inquiry as something new, we will spend time making current practices of inquiry visible. Then, we will spend time delving more deeply into the Inquiry Design Model (IDM) (http://www.c3teachers.org/idm) and the way in which the model helps to support both teachers and students engaged in inquiry.
