They should be able to connect mathematics with a real-world situation through the use of mathematical models. The connections between mathematics and real-world problems developed in mathematical modelling add 3 values to, and provide incentive and context for, studying mathematical topics.
(NCTM, 2009, p. 2)
One cannot deny the practical uses of mathematics in, for example, making wise purchase, measuring distances, finding locations, estimating expenses and anticipating future problems to find solutions early enough, to name a few.
