# Mathematical Thinking

*Excerpts from the Virginia Department of Mathematics Curriculum Framework*

Students today require more rigorous mathematical knowledge and skills to pursue higher education, to compete in a techologically sophisticated work force, and to be informed citizens. Students must gain an understanding of fundamental ideas and they must develop proficiency in mathematical skills.

The goals for all students are that they: become mathematical problem solvers, communicate mathematically, reason mathematically, make mathematical connections, and use mathematical representations to model and interpret practical situations.
