About the Course

Modeling with Mathematics

  • Grades 7-11
  • CTY-Level
  • Session-Based

Harness and integrate the math skills you’ve learned in school while exploring their applications and interconnectedness in-depth in this unique mathematics modeling course. Through course materials, assignments, and class activities, you’ll work to solve interesting problems using techniques taught in Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1, and Geometry. While applying what you’ve learned by hand, you’ll also learn 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 answer questions or concerns.
