The new zealand curriculum says
The New Zealand Curriculum says:

In a range of meaningful contexts, students will be

engaged in thinking mathematically and statistically.

They will solve problems and model situations.

The mathematics standards say
The Mathematics Standards say:

While knowledge is critically important for mathematical understanding, its primary role is to facilitate the student’s solving problems and modelling situations. Just demonstrating knowledge is not sufficient to meet a standard. Rather the student must use knowledge to think mathematically when solving problems or modelling situations.

Pg 10 Mathematics Standards

  • Why Do Problem Solving?

  • Problem solving:

  • places the focus on the student making sense of mathematical ideas.

  • encourages students to believe in their ability to think mathematically. 

  • provides ongoing assessment information that can help teachers make instructional decisions.

  • activities provide an entry point which allows all students to be working on the same problem.  

  • develops mathematical power. .

  • better represents the nature of mathematics.
