Mathematics provides the advanced tools and techniques needed for facing these new tasks, and takes an increasingly significant role in future developments, as IT systems and "big data" become ever more central to modern life. Since the times of Plato, “mathematics was virtually the first thing everyone has to learn…common to all arts, science, and forms of thought” (Stinson, 2004). Step 2: Decide what the problem is actually about and write down the “who” and “what” the problem is about.

Instead, appealing but unvalidated trends, such as constructivism and discovery learning, have caught educators' attention. Perhaps you want to do some of the above and have someone else teach the harder subjects. You may want to insist that they read the textbook and other written material.

They realize that they need to learn more about the evidence-based strategies outlined above and how to implement them with fidelity, an effort that will require training and ongoing support. Now a mathematician might say at this point, “screw this, I’m going to make up my own math to solve it!” And that’s what we’re going to try to do. Marilyn Burns has long been a world leader in this area. For students taking the computer-based tests, a calculator will be provided in the technology platform for the test.
