ab: Summary: An important question for mathematics teachers is this: “How can
we help students learn mathematics to solve everyday problems, rather
than teaching them only to memorize rules and practice mathematical
procedures?” Teaching students using modeling activities can help
them learn mathematics in real-world problem-solving situations that
are useful outside school. Modeling, described in the Common Core State
Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM), is one of the eight Standards for
Mathematical Practice. By including modeling as a mathematical
practice, CCSSM invites teachers to strategize ways to develop
students’ mathematical modeling. This article describes the
strategies that two middle school teachers and their students used
while working on modeling activities with the author, a researcher,
over a semester. (ERIC)
