- The Consortium for Mathematics and Its
Applications (COMAP).
**The**organization to join for modeling resources. Membership includes several free resources on mathematical modeling and a fine magazine, Consortium. They produce excellent books, texts, lessons, and videos. - The International Community of Teachers of Mathematical Modelling and Applications (ICTMA)

- Mathematics:
Modeling Our World.
*An NSF supported high school curriculum developed by COMAP.* - Contemporary Precalculus
Through Applications. The North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics.
Everyday Learning.
*A fine text or resource on functions, data modeling, and mathematical modeling.* - Mathematical Modeling in a Real and Complex World (Connected Curriculum Project)
- MASTER: Modeling and Simulation Tools for Education Reform (Shodor Education Foundation)
- Precalculus: A
Modeling Approach. Driscoll, Patrick and David Olwell. McGraw-Hill,
Boston, 1998.
*This text contains many interesting exercises and data sets and does a fine job using the language of modeling and discussing modeling habits. Chapter Three, "Modeling Concepts", is a valuable discussion of modeling considerations.*

- For All Practical Purposes,
5th ed. COMAP. W. H. Freeman, New York, 1997.
*A superb text for introducing students to the breadth of mathematics subjects and their real world application. A wonderful video series accompanies the text (call Annenberg/CPB at 1-800-LEARNER for information).* - Metamagical Themas. Douglas Hofstadter. Basic Books.
*Incredible essays on numeracy, default thinking, and the ubiquity of the prisoner's dilemma as an explanation for societal problems.*
