Why do we do it? The reason is simple: like you, our focus is on the future of today’s children. How can we best equip our students to flourish in a world that is rapidly changing? The answer most often overlooked is the importance of teaching mathematics.
Knowledge of mathematics provides a pathway to success in the data-driven worlds of finance, statistics, science, technology, and engineering, but that is not all. Mathematics is about more than numbers. Studying math teaches students how to analyze information, think critically, make informed decisions, persevere, interpret information, problem solve, discover patterns, envision solutions, make connections, reason abstractly, reason quantitatively, learn from mistakes, and be precise. These habits of mind will help them, as adults, to adapt and succeed in an ever-changing and unpredictable world.
