Summary: Encouraging students to reason with quantitative relationships can help them develop, understand, and explore mathematical models of realworld phenomena. Through two examples  modeling the motion of a speeding car and the growth of a Jactus plant  this article describes how teachers can use six practical tips to help students develop quantitative reasoning.
