How do students learn math?

Math is best learned through practice and application of mathematical processes or formulas to real-world problems. It is one thing to memorize a math problem with a known solution, but another thing to have to figure out a solution to a unique and original problem. Students will best gain an understanding for math through the latter, and will better retain this knowledge by practicing its application rather than by being asked to memorize problems.

What is the solution in math?

A solution is an answer which satisfies all the constraints posed in the problem. Sometimes there can be more than one solution to a problem, sometimes there are no solutions to a problem. For example the solution to "3x+4=13" is the value of x which satisfies the equation. Of course it's (13-4)/3=3.
