To be an informed individual requires the ability to reason, to solve problems, and to have the tools necessary to be productive in our technological society. To become mathematically literate an individual must develop the ability to analyze, explore, conjecture, reason, use quantitative and spatial information and use mathematical tools to solve problems and make decisions. They must also develop self-confidence in their abilities and to understand and appreciate the role of math in everyday life.
