Knowledge and appreciation of mathematics is essential to students’ intellectual development. Its beauty, its applications and its central place in many other disciplines commend it as a subject that can be understood and enjoyed by all learners. Its study helps students to develop thinking skills, organize their thoughts, understand and create logical arguments, and make valid inferences. Through cooperative learning with students and teachers, students experience the importance of working together and the rewards that come from building community.
