Constructivism is a learning strategy that draws on students' existing knowledge, beliefs, and skills. However, this is one of the main ways for a gang to lay claim to an area. Wolfram (2010) argues that math outside of math classrooms involves the following steps: Could see problem as complex, with many different methods in which to arrive at answer Wolfram notes that in today's global society, careers that use math more often than not rely on computers to do computational tasks (stage 3) and individual creativity and understanding of complexities of math are then responsible for stages 1, 2, and 4.
