Standard 1: Worthwhile Mathematical Tasks The teacher of mathematics should pose tasks that are based on knowledge of students understandings, interests, and experiences.

The knowledge of so many mathematical skills is needed to successfully complete this unit. Do you feel that the skills should be taught in advance and then applied to the situation or should the skill be taught in the context of the application?

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
