Mathematics -- Study and teaching;
Each day mathematics teachers and their students go through the daily routine of solving basic textbook mathematical problems. The teacher discusses the basic concept that is being studied and then assigns a number of problems. The assignment is generally limited to performing algorithmic computations in a rote manner. Problem solving is limited or nonexistant.
