Students learn math best through activities that encourage them to explore, think about what they are exploring, solve problems using information they have gathered themselves, and explain how they reached their solutions. Students learn more easily when they connect mathematical concepts and procedures with their own experience. Through problem solving that involves the application and communication of concepts in Mathematics, students will gain a deeper knowledge of mathematical concepts and will develop a positive attitude towards the study of Mathematics.

In an age dominated by numbers, individuals who lack the ability to think numerically can neither make wise decisions nor participate fully in a society which places value on quantitative evidence.
