GothamSchools on MT^2

Published by MrHonner on

Gotham Schools recently ran a nice piece on Math for America’s inaugural Master Teachers on Teaching (MT^2) conference, which focused on mathematical modeling in the classroom.

The piece, found here, discusses the many different ways MfA teachers are bringing modeling into their classrooms, and engaging students in the mathematics of real-world, open-ended problems.

My talk, “g = 4, and Other Lies the Test Told Me” is featured in the article, as it addresses how our desire to teach and practice modeling often “is at odds with the way that the city and state assess students”.

Thanks to Gotham Schools for helping to spread the great work of MfA and its teachers!
