Modeling with Mathematics
- Grades 7-11
Build your math skills while diving deeper into their applications and interconnectedness in this unique mathematics modeling course. We’ll explore linear, quadratic, exponential, and geometric forms of modeling, and work to solve interesting problems using techniques taught in Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, and Geometry through course materials, assignments, and class activities. While applying what you’ve learned, you’ll also explore how to use technology to simplify problems and get more accurate solutions. In addition to weekly virtual class meetings, students may schedule one-on-one virtual meetings directly with the instructor to discuss questions or concerns.
