Developing Strategic Competence through Modeling Mathematical Ideas include the application of mathematics for 1) problem solving; 2) problem posing; 3) mathematical modeling; 4) the flexible use of representational models, tools, technology and manipulatives to solve problems and communicate mathematical understanding; and 5) the deep understanding of conceptual models critical to understanding a specific mathematics topic.

Mathematics Modeling is a process that starts with a real world phenomenon that is posed as a mathematical problem by making assumptions and constraints. This is a process that requires the modeler to consider variables that can be used to build a model. Typically, mathematical modeling requires one to use mathematics to describe the phenomenon, or rank, predict, optimize to make decisions.
