The Math Modeling Hub (MMHub) is an online community of practice that serves as both a repository of open educational resources for math modeling education and a space for dialog and collaboration on topics of interest to math modeling educators. This interactive webinar will provide an opportunity for participants to learn more about the MMHub, and for the MMHub to learn more about the needs and interests of the community. All are welcome in this conversation!
