A. Computational skills
In learning computational skills, we develop studying and learning techniques that help us understand what we learn so that we can apply that knowledge to problem solving.
B. Puzzle and Problem Solving
Because we develop and apply a set of rules to successfully solve puzzles, we can apply that knowledge to problem solving in general.
C. Measurement and Geometry
Measurement is part of building and understanding our world. Geometry develops and utilizes these measuring skills.
D. Mathematical Theory
Everything has an explanation. Theory is that discipline that allows us to understand what we learn so that we can apply it to learning still more.
