Two requirements for teaching mathematics in the future: I Provide teachers with content knowledge, which is relevant to teaching 1. Every concept is precisely defined, and definitions furnish the basis for logical deductions 2. Mathematical statement are precise. At any moment, it is clear what is known and what is not known 3. Every assertion can be backed by logical reasoning 4. Mathematics is coherent 5. Mathematics is goal oriented, and every concept or skill has a purpose II Knowledge is consistent to following five fundamental principles: References:
