Teaching Problem Solving Through Mathematical Modeling
In this one-day working session participants will learn about the various uses for problem solving and the types of modeling required in all state standards. Participants will examine how problem solving is used to apply or model with mathematics and used to deepen, extend, or add to mathematical knowledge. This session focuses on strategies for teaching students to become adept at reasoning and applying critical thinking in mathematics while solving routine and nonroutine problems. The session addresses methods for processing student thinking through effective mathematical discourse and making mathematical connections explicit by the end of the lesson.

This training gave me a variety of ideas for how to help my students learn problem-solving skills. I really enjoyed learning about the variety of resources and simple things that I can do to help my students become better problem solvers.
A really great training especially for a first year teacher. It was very informative & gave a lot of resources!
I thought the training was fantastic. We were given resources both paper and online activities that we can use immediately with our classes both as bell work, questions to prompt thinking and sharing, and even turn the assignments into week long activities that build on one another.
