Modeling is an important mathematical skill, yet instructors are often at a loss when it comes to teaching it. This workshop will help you teach modeling in a way that strengthens your students' development of mathematical concepts, interest in mathematics, and appreciation for the uses of mathematics. Based on ideas and materials developed as part of the NSF-supported Project MOSAIC, whose aim is to create stronger connections among modeling, statistics, computation and calculus, the workshop will share existing materials for teaching modeling-based calculus from the introductory level through differential equations. As part of the workshop, you will develop a syllabus for integrating modeling into one of your own courses and a modeling case study. Come see how modeling can be your ally in teaching undergraduate calculus.

Primary funding is provided by NSF DUE- 0920350.
