McCulloch, Allison W.; Whitehead, Ashley; Lovett, Jennifer N.; Whitley, Blake – Mathematics Teacher, 2017

Context is what makes mathematical modeling tasks different from more traditional textbook word problems. Math problems are sometimes stripped of context as they are worked on. For modeling problems, however, context is important for making sense of the mathematics. The task should be brought back to its real-world context as often as possible. In…

Czocher, Jennifer A.; Moss, Diana L. – Mathematics Teacher, 2017

Why are math modeling problems the source of such frustration for students and teachers? The conceptual understanding that students have when engaging with a math modeling problem varies greatly. They need opportunities to make their own assumptions and design the mathematics to fit these assumptions (CCSSI 2010). Making these assumptions is part…

Mathematical modeling, in which students use mathematics to explain or interpret physical, social, or scientific phenomena, is an essential component of the high school curriculum. The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) classify modeling as a K-12 standard for mathematical practice and as a conceptual category for high school…

Wendt, Ted; Murphy, Kevin – Mathematics Teacher, 2015

According to a 2012 study from the Program for International Student Assessment, twenty-nine out of sixty-five participating nations and other jurisdictions outperformed the United States in mathematics by a statistically significant margin (up from twenty-three in 2009) (Heitin 2013). To improve students' mathematical understanding, the authors…
