IMMERSION

NSF Awards: 1441024

2017 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6

IMMERSION (Integrating Mathematical Modeling, Experiential Learning and Research through a Sustainable Infrastructure and an Online Network) is an NSF-funded STEM-C project that works with elementary grades teachers across the country to help them integrate mathematical modeling into their classrooms. The research is supported by three collaborating institutions and their local school districts: George Mason University and Fairfax County Public Schools in Virginia, Harvey Mudd College and Pomona Unified School District in California, and Montana State University and Bozeman School District in Montana. This geographic diversity has the advantage of showing how mathematical modeling works in classrooms with drastically different student demographics, as well as how it can be integrated into both common core and non-common core curricula.

Interest is growing about how to teach mathematical modeling from kindergarten through the graduate level. This project aims to understand what mathematical modeling looks like at the elementary level and what resources and training help teachers facilitate modeling with their students.
