relationships between mathematic concepts and real-life situations. They
look for patterns, make predictions, and evaluate their conclusions. They
can form problems, represent them, and solve them. They apply critical

solving strategies and provides numerous teaching strategies and activities
that you can apply to your teaching right away.
