Tracking Trout: Engaging Students in Modeling
Alhammouri, Ahmad M.; Foley, Gregory D.; Dael, Kevin
Mathematics Teacher, v111 n6 p416-423 Apr 2018
In this article, the authors describe how a theoretical framework--the modeling cycle of Bliss, Fowler, and Galluzzo (2014)--came to life in their classroom as students struggled with an open-ended modeling task. The authors share their high school students' work--warts and all. They explain how they used their students' ideas and errors to help the students learn from one another and ultimately develop understanding of key mathematical concepts.
