MATH Standards for High School, MODELING
Modeling links classroom mathematics and statistics to everyday life, work, and decision-making. Modeling is the process of choosing and using appropriate mathematics and statistics to analyze empirical situations, to understand them better, and to improve decisions. When making mathematical models, technology is valuable for varying assumptions, exploring consequences, and comparing predictions with data. Examples include:
- Modeling savings account balance or investment growth.
- Analyzing risk in situations such as extreme sports, [or financial investing]
- Use probability to evaluate outcomes of decisions
