What does it mean? How do teachers and students implement it? What type of Math learning tasks support this Common Core Practice Standard - MP4 ? What questions do you ask to develop this Mathematical Practice in students?
While researching into this Mathematical Practice, I found Dan Meyer use a very innovative and effective approach to make "Model with Mathematics" easier to understand. He did what he does best - use a real life example. Also found that Department of Education @Louisiana's materials explaining Common Core very useful.
Although many sources online try to address this in different capacities, I've created this Infographic to help break down what Model with Maths means for you. In one page it covers the key aspects of this Common Core Mathematical Practice.
Print and keep it handy as a poster for your Math class.
