The unprecedented changes that are taking place in today’s world will profoundly affect the future of today’s students. To meet the demands of the world in which they will live, students will need to adapt to changing conditions and to learn independently.  They will require the ability to use technology effectively and the skills for processing large amounts of quantitative information. Today’s mathematics curriculum must prepare students for their future roles in society. It must equip them with essential mathematical knowledge and skills; with skills of reasoning, problem solving, and communication; and, most importantly, with the ability and the incentive to continue learning on their own. The math curriculum provides a framework for accomplishing these goals.

The math curriculum integrates appropriate technologies into the learning and doing of mathematics, while recognizing the continuing importance of students’ mastering essential numeric and algebraic skills. Mathematical knowledge becomes meaningful and powerful in application. The math curriculum embeds the learning of mathematics in the solving of problems based on real-life situations.

Rich problem-solving situations are drawn from other disciplines, such as computer science, business, recreation, tourism, biology, physics, or technology, as well as from subjects historically thought of as distant from mathematics, such as geography or art.
