A Mathematics Modeling workshop was presented for middle and high school teachers of mathematics in the CSRA HUB at South Aiken High School on August 17. The workshop presenters were Barbara Sproull and Celeste Brockington, mathematics teachers at South Aiken High, who recently attended a five-day Woodrow Wilson Mathematical Modeling Institute.

The algebra through precalculus content presented in the workshop involved modeling using limited technology. The workshop was designed to give participants a deeper appreciation and understanding of the process that links classroom mathematics to the real world. Activities were also shared to make the hours spent teaching more interesting, effective and enjoyable for the student and teacher.
