As a language of patterns, mathematics is a means for describing the world in which we live.
All students need a deep understanding of mathematics; for this to occur, rigorous mathematical content must be reorganized, taught, and assessed in a problem-solving environment.
For students to develop this deeper level of understanding, their knowledge must be connected to a variety of ideas and skills across topic areas and grade levels in mathematics, to other subjects taught in school, as well as to situations outside the classroom.
