ab: Summary: The main goal of this article is to elaborate on the process of
modeling as described by Common Core State Standards for Mathematics
(CCSSM), paying particular attention to the modeling elements. The
authors highlight practical aspects of modeling through a concrete
example, carefully analyzing to make the process of mathematical
modeling more accessible to teachers and students. The example provided
shows how a single activity can target multiple concepts and
approaches, allowing students to understand those concepts and make
connections among then. Studentsâ€™ work should be evaluated not only
on the outcome of their model but also on the thought process
demonstrated in more than one iteration of the modeling cycle. To help
with this understanding, the authors also provide a useful evaluation
rubric with criteria for assessing student work in modeling. (ERIC)
