  • The Common Core State Standards ask students to “model with mathematics” and “use appropriate tools strategically." What does that look like in middle school? Use Sketchpad and TinkerPlots to explore geometry, probability, and statistics with dynamic models and representations, and help students ask “what if” questions about shapes and data.
