Mathematics is integral to every aspect of daily life. Skills can be used to solve problems related to time, sports, travel, money management, science, and art, to name a few. Mathematical values and habits of mind go beyond numbers and symbols: they help us connect, create, communicate, visualize, reason, and solve. Using mathematical thinking allows us to analyze novel and complex problems from a variety of perspectives, consider possible solutions, and evaluate the effectiveness of solutions.
