Mathematical modeling is taking off at all levels of mathematics education and provides one way for students to develop meaningful connections between mathematics and the world around us. In this colloquium talk, Mathematical Association of America Deputy Executive Director Rachel Levy will share some surprising insights from four years following elementary school teachers engaging their students as mathematical modelers and discuss how this work impacted her own practice as a mathematical modeling educator and researcher.
