Professional Development Day

Modeling, Graphs, and Functions

Monday, January 29

9:30 am to 3:00 pm

(in person)

Mathematical modeling is a key part of math standards.  By using math to model real-world situations, students not only gain a deeper grasp of the mathematical structures and processes they need to master, they gain an appreciation for the uses and applications of math outside of the classroom.  Join MoMath Outreach Mathematician Chaim Goodman-Strauss to model multiple real-life situations using quadratic, cubic, and exponential functions.  Leave with classroom activities, lesson plans, and expert background information to enrich your class with the creative, human aspects of our favorite subject.

This program, presented by MoMath’s education team, is appropriate for math educators in grades 6 through 12.

This is an in-person event at the National Museum of Mathematics (11 E 26th St).

Please note that complimentary in-school field trips are no longer available.
