    Tasks requiring a high level of cognitive demand will develop students’ problem-solving skills exponentially.
    Teachers across all grade levels agree that problem solving and reasoning are areas of weakness in students. Assessments among U.S. students indicate that these weaknesses persist (NCTM 2014) in spite of repeated calls that date back more than thirty years for increased problem solving, reasoning, and sense making in our schools. The NCTM is leading the charge for an increased emphasis in these three areas.
