Gaining mathematical power is the focus of this instructional program. Mathematically powerful students can think and communicate by drawing on mathematical ideas and by using math tools and techniques. They can solve problems and use data systematically to develop patterns and explanations. Mathematically powerful students can think and communicate by drawing on mathematical ideas and by using math tools and techniques and they can solve problems and use data systematically to develop patterns and explanations. Mathematically powerful students do something meaningful and purposeful with their mathematics, including furthering their studies in science, technology, and social science and applying their math power to daily living and workplace options. All students need to engage in challenging mathematics in order to be prepared for the technical jobs of the new workplace.
