MS12
Implementing Mathematical Modeling in the Elementary Grades and Beyond

9:30 AM – 11:30 AM
Room: Assembly E – Fifth Level

Mathematical modeling is an important topic of study and mathematical practice in the newly adopted Common Core State Standards in grades K-12. This symposium will engage the SIAM audience in considering ways in which early introduction to mathematical modeling can promote computational thinking. Brief presentations from a team of mathematicians, math educators, teachers and undergraduate STEM scholars will demonstrate how they collaborated on Mathematical Modeling tasks in the early grades. They will share case studies of how MM enhanced the teaching and learning of mathematics by bringing in the real world context to students and enriched the learning environment.
