The revolution in computational modeling and computer intensive informatics such as data mining have become essential new 21st Century methodologies of deep critical inquiry. Teachers in training need to know how to use these new tools in the classroom and to make them available to our next generation of students. Through computer simulations, 3D models and extensive web-based resources designed for the learner we can make concepts available to students that twenty years ago were only understood by those upper 5% of students skilled in the formal mathematics. The PT3 funded EdGrid program sponsors seven teams to explore various models of integrating modeling and visualization as methods of discovery and scientific analysis into teacher preparation.
