Our Mission

The American Modeling Teachers Association (AMTA) is a professional organization of teachers, by teachers, and for teachers who use Modeling Instruction(TM) in their Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) teaching.  Our mission is to provide professional development for teachers in the Modeling Method of Instruction, to provide resources that support the use of Modeling Instruction(TM) in physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics and middle school science classrooms, and to support and enable collaboration among Modelers.  AMTA strives to foster brilliant teaching and deep learning.

What Our Members Have to Say

  • Modeling encourages cooperation and discourse about complicated ideas in a non-threatening, supportive environment.

    Kelli W. Arizona Physics & Math Instructor
  • Modeling has led me to the scientific practice of science education. It helps me focus on what helps my students learn.

    Jim D. Kansas STEM teacher
  • Modeling Instruction has changed the way I teach Chemistry. [It] is a very student-centered approach to teaching and I firmly believe that it is the best way to teach. 

    Gerri S. Tennessee Chemistry Instructor
  • I was late about 10 minutes due to a meeting in the office ...students had picked up right where we left off the day before.  One student was acting as moderator.  Teams had whiteboards.  They had created their own review problem and posted it on the front board.

    LISTSERV post Chemistry Modeling
  • I believe the methods and philosophy of Modeling Instruction have changed physics teaching and have made physics more accessible for all students.

    Karie M. Arizona Physics Instructor
  • Modeling is how I became interested in physics as a high school student in the early 1990s.  More students should have this powerful science experience!

    Melissa G. Arizona Physics Instructor
  • Modeling Instruction motivated me to step back and let students learn through inquiry and my career got a boost!
