Mathematical modeling tasks and online collaborative tools can engage each and every student. They provide us with opportunities to invite students into the mathematical conversation, supporting students' identity and agency. In this session, we will share resources that can support and inspire mathematics leaders and teachers as they work to infuse mathematical modeling into their classrooms. Come explore how modeling spans grade bands, fosters inclusion, and amplifies student voice. a) Explore how math modeling tasks encourage students as "doers" of mathematics and promote agency; b) Identify and use tools that support individual student voices as well as collaboration; c) Find and begin to develop approaches for engaging their students in math modeling.
