- Models and Modeling in Physics (by Larry Dukerich)
A general presentation you could use for teachers, administrators, parents
or school board members.
- Modeling en Espanol
A Spanish-language version of the general presentation.
- Modeling Cycle on Unit 3 - Uniform acceleration
A presentation on a Modeling Cycle describing the unit dealing with uniform
acceleration. It outlines differences between conventional and Modeling instruction
and goes into greater depth on the deployment activities used in this cycle.
- A Modeling Approach to Science
Nicholas Park presented this to all K-12 science teachers at his school.
- Physics First at Clayton High School by Rex Rice. Rex was a pioneer at Physics First. He had huge success when he incorporated Modeling Instruction. Even though he presented it in 2002, excellent outcomes persisted until he retired in 2017.
- Modeling Instruction: meaningful
professional development (April 2014)
Jane Jackson's invited talk at the American Physical Society meeting, for
the group"Excellence in Physics Teaching" award to High School Modeling
Instruction. .ppt version for Macintosh

* David Hestenes talked about modeling theory and its implementation in high
school Modeling Instruction.
* Then Jane Jackson talked about Modeling Workshops, and our work at ASU and
nationwide. (Half of her talk was contributed by Larry Dukerich, 1/4 by David
Hestenes, and the rest by several modelers. Thanks to Larry and Dave, for
their ideas and words.)
* Colleen finished with the vision and work of the AMTA, a grassroots professional
organization of, by, and for teachers who use Modeling Instruction.
Here is a picture of us with the APS President.
