Modeling and Data Analysis Literacy

Modeling and Data Analysis Literacy (MoDAL) is a state-funded professional development project for secondary mathematics teachers in Idaho. About 250 teachers have completed week-long MoDAL Summer Institutes, leading to dozens of classroom activities completed by tens of thousands of Idaho children.
