Mathematics can be a complex and challenging topic for students and teachers.
The new standards that have been introduced over the past few years have changed and challenged many teachers ways of delivering instruction in the classroom.
Many traditional methods have been proven to be less effective and the need to transform learning to meet research based math practice standards is critical.
