Modeling with mathematics requires students to pose and explore real-world questions, identify and define relevant quantities, as well as test and revise mathematical models to answer these questions. In this one-day workshop, participants will discuss the modeling process and explore problems that engage elementary and secondary students in mathematical modeling.
Make It Mississippi Summer Leadership Program for Educators offers a unique hands-on experience for teachers to learn about new pathways in the manufacturing sectors. On the University of Mississippi campus, educators will work directly with faculty and staff from the Haley Barbour Center for Manufacturing Excellence and Center for Mathematics and Science Education to help align industry needs with content for the Mississippi College and Career Readiness Standards.
This course is one of four courses in the CMSE Middle Math Institute. Educators who complete all four courses will be eligible to receive a Middle Level Mathematics (901) Supplemental Endorsement.
