The new reform in math, which has been going on for at least ten years, is to not only teach one method to solve a problem or answer a question, but to instill in the student the confidence to think about the world mathematically and the tools to approach problems in many ways. I have worked as an elementary educator for 25 years and also teach at the university level in a teacher training program and feel that it is important that students feel empowered by math and realize that math is part of everyday life; it's all around us. CGI is a fantastic tool for building a thinking meaningcentered classroom. As in all things, a balance should be maintained with teachinglearning specific methods to solve computational problems.
