I happened to be a great math student, but had very little understanding of real world applications. This is the area that teachers can improve to help expand students' understanding of math. There are students who don't "get" math and need instruction to be delivered in a way that makes sense to them. Using models is a way to help all learners understand a concept, reinforce learning for students who "get" the algorithm, and have students work together to understand a concept.In my own education, I would say that this area was the most lacking.
