Math lessons are designed to provide daily and weekly experiences in mathematical problem solving involving codes and algebraic concepts. Key emphasis is placed upon discovering patterns, and encouraging experimentation with numbers to arrive at solutions.
These lessons provide students an opportunity to see problems as challenges. The problems "may appear difficult, even frustrating," but they allow students many experiences that will enable them to probe, to experiment and to make intelligent guesses." Some problems can be solved using algebra, but for those who don't know algebraic concepts, a trial and error method will work."He who can work with numbers can also bring great riches into his life and the lives around him." -unknown
