While learning mathematics, students will be actively  engaged, using concrete materials and appropriate  technologies to facilitate problem solving. However,  facility in the use of technology shall not be regarded  as a substitute for a student’s understanding of  quantitative and algebraic concepts or for proficiency  in basic computations. The acquisition of specialized  mathematical vocabulary and language is crucial  to a student’s understanding and appreciation of  the subject and fosters confidence in mathematics  communication and problem solving. Problem solving  is integrated throughout the content strands. The  development of problem-solving skills is a major  goal of the mathematics program at every grade  level. The development of skills and problem-solving  strategies must be integrated early and continuously  into each student’s mathematics education. The use  of appropriate technology and the interpretation of  the results from applying technology tools will be an  integral part of teaching, learning, and assessment.
