This web page is the fourth of the eight pages of the Inside Mathematics initiative to help guide and support educators in learning the Common Core framework. The web page is designed to relate the Common Core framework to teaching practices and students' learning as they become mathematically proficient students with the capacity to "model with mathematics." Students move explicitly between real-world scenarios and mathematical representations of those scenarios. Included are various classroom connections: classroom observations and video excerpts of examples in various grade levels of teachers engaging students in mathematical modeling.
