Washington State Teacher Certification: Middle Level Math (4-9)
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 minor in Mathematics for Middle School Teachers covers these standards in the courses indicated by the table below. Entries represent the level of competency expected in each course with 1 being low, 2 medium, and 3 high.
