Against All Odds: Inside Statistics Updated
The new series features 32 10-minute videos showing people from all walks of life using statistics in their work, as well as interactive tools, and guides.
Picking up where the original Against All Odds left off in the 1980s, the new series maintains the same emphasis on “doing” statistics. Video modules take viewers on location to where people from all walks of life are using statistics in their work. Online materials allow viewers to practice and review what they’ve learned.

Mathematical Modeling Handbook I & II
The Mathematical Modeling Handbook is intended to support the implementation
of the Common Core State Standards high school Mathematics Modeling
conceptual category. The CCSS document provides a brief description of mathematical
modeling accompanied by 22 star symbols (*) designating modeling
standards and standard clusters. The CCSS approach is to interpret modeling
“not as a collection of isolated topics but in relation to other standards.”
The goal of this Handbook is to aid teachers in implementing the CCSS approach
by helping students to develop a modeling disposition, that is, to encourage
recognition of mathematical opportunities in everyday events. The Handbook
provides lessons and teachers’ notes for thirty modeling topics together with
reference to specific CCSS starred standards for which the topics may be appropriate. Learn More

Consortium Free Download Page
Consortium, published twice
a year and available electronically,
blends contemporary teaching activities with commentaries,
articles and contests to bring the excitement of mathematical
modeling to high school classrooms. Each issue contains
section, a reproducible classroom activity centered on a real-world
modeling problem. Recent Pull-Out
lessons have modeled a wide range of topics including the
genetics of sickle cell anemia and the accuracy of the Patriot
Starting with issue 104 COMAP has decided to make the Consortium available as a free download. Learn More
Mathematics: Modeling Our World (MMOW)
Course 1, 2 & 3
Based on feedback from users of the first edition, COMAP has completed a major revision of Courses 1-3, now available in both print and CD-ROM.
• Some chapters are completely rewritten (i.e., Pick a Winner and Landsat, which is now titled Scene from Above). Other chapters are streamlined while retaining the thematic, modeling approach.
• Most chapters are shorter. The revised Course 1 has a total of 57 Activities— a 39% reduction from first edition’s 93.
