What Does Modeling with Mathematics Really Mean?

Keep it REAL!  This fourth common core standard for mathematical practice could be summed up in that statement.  Modeling with Mathematics doesn’t quite mean pull out the snap cubes, color tiles, and pattern blocks.  The essence of this standard is to create problem solving experiences for students that they will encounter in real life.  Some practical problem solving experiences could include:

  • If I have to put 2/3 cups of flour in the recipe and I need to double the recipe, how many times do I need  to fill a 1/3 measuring cup to put enough flour in the doubled recipe?
  • Which cell phone data and calling package is the best buy?
  • What time do I need to wake up for school to get dressed and be there fifteen minutes early?
  • If I can only spend 25% of my income on renting a house, how much money do I need to make to rent a house that is $500 a month? $600? $900?
  • How could you create a floor plan for a house with 1428 square feet?
  • If a certain medicine is shown to be effective 33% of the time, should it be used to treat an illness?
