Engaging Students through Authentic Mathematical Modeling

September 30, 2019 03:30 PM EST - September 30, 2019 04:30 PM EST

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.
