Mathematical processes are different from content in that they overarch the subject and are not thought of as hierarchical. A list of processes could contain:

  • problem-solving (including investigating);

  • mathematical modelling;

  • reasoning;

  • communicating;

  • making connections (including applying mathematics); and

  • using tools.
