The research is useful for a wide range of ages.
Through the years mathematics has be taught using many different textbooks most of which start with a uniform order of topics. This has done little to help students who lag behind. However, this research has an effective and unique order of only the main topics involved in the strategy. The main objective is to enable students to not only understand the subject when it is taught in their respective learning institutions, but also to enable them to implement the strategies in their self-study.
