Math Modeling Can Make You Filthy Rich Mathematical modeling is the closest we can come to giving our students HUGE potential to make them filthy rich. So much of what we teach is instantly irrelevant because of devices we carry in our pockets. In this age of technology, the difference between wildly successful and out of business is the quality of a mathematical model. I’ll share with you an intuitive structure that will help you separate fake mathematical modeling from what will really help our students become complex problem solvers.
Mr. Kaplinsky's Bio Hi, I’m Robert. I train mathematics educators who want their students to be better problem solvers.

I do this while continuing to work full time for a K-12 school district in Southern California as a mathematics teacher specialist. It helps me stay connected to current issues in education as a typical month involves me teaching students at multiple grade levels, mentoring teachers, and providing professional development.
