NCTM 2016: Modeling your way to understanding with Realistic Mathematics Education

Raymond Johnson and I facilitated a session on RME for high school teachers at NCTM 2016.

In this session we discussed the unique way that "modeling" is conceptualized in RME (as organizing rather than translating), and we  exemplified the RME approach by engaging participants in an activity sequence that guides students to reinvent formal operations with quadratics and polynomials.
