    To witness a spike in students’ mathematical abilities, explore a model-eliciting activity.
    An important question for mathematics teachers is this: “How can we help students learn mathematics to solve everyday problems, rather than teaching them only to memorize rules and practice mathematical procedures?” Teaching students using modeling activities can help them learn mathematics in real-world problem-solving situations that are useful outside school (Lesh and Doerr 2003b).
