Washingon State Teacher Certification: Mathematics (5-12)
Standard 7: Modeling and Technology
Candidates will be able to connect mathematics with real life problems through the use of mathematical modeling and technology.
- 7.A:
- Construct mathematical models in the content strands (e.g., look at a real life situation and transpose it into a mathematical problem, solve the problem, and interpret the solution in real life)
- 7.B:
- Use the appropriate technology available
- 7.B.1:
- Explore conjectures, visualize, and analyze the mathematics
- 7.B.2:
- Develop concepts and apply them to a context
The B.S. degree in Mathematics, with a concentration in Secondary Education, covers these standards in the courses indicated in the table below. Entries represent the level of competency expected in each course with 1 being low, 2 medium, and 3 high.
