Mathematics is a scientific body of knowledge focused on the key concepts of quantity, structure, space, and change. It is a method of looking at the world in terms of patterns, and mathematicians seek out these relations in nature and in society. Mathematicians explore such concepts, aiming to formulate new conjectures and establish their truth by rigorous deduction from appropriately chosen axioms and definitions.
Through the use of abstraction and logical reasoning, mathematics evolved from counting, calculation, measurement, and the systematic study of the shapes and motions of physical objects. Knowledge and use of basic mathematics have always been an inherent and integral part of all members of society.
Unprecedented changes that are taking place in today’s world will profoundly affect the futures of today’s students in terms of their mathematical understanding. To meet these 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 tomorrows. It must equip them with essential mathematics 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. Mathematical knowledge becomes meaningful and powerful in application. Rich problem-solving situations can be drawn from closely related disciplines, such as computer science, physics, or technology, as well as from subjects historically thought of as distant from mathematics, such as political science or art.
It is important that these links between disciplines be carefully explored, analyzed, and discussed to emphasize for students the pervasiveness of mathematical knowledge and mathematical thinking in all subject areas.
