This summarizes the content of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, and highlights Expanding Horizons talks that address various elements of the standards. We also include links from some Expanding Horizons presentations back to the Common Core elements to which they relate.

**HS – Modeling**

Modeling links classroom mathematics and statistics to everyday life, work, and decision-making. This area doesn’t have a separate set of “tagged” standards, but uses the basic modeling cycle, which involves:

- identifying variables in the situation and selecting those that represent essential features,
- formulating a model by creating and selecting geometric, graphical,tabular, algebraic, or statistical representations that describe

relationships between the variables, - analyzing and performing operations on these relationships to draw conclusions,
- interpreting the results of the mathematics in terms of the original situation,
- validating the conclusions by comparing them with the situation, and then either improving the model or, if it is acceptable,
- reporting on the conclusions and the reasoning behind them.

Choices, assumptions, and approximations are present throughout this cycle.
