Let us look, for example, at the mandatory elementary school subjects such as history, mathematics, art and even science. These classes make a strong emphasis on reasoning and conceptual understanding of the course, while practical application is very often unclear for the majority of students . This can be seen from the research prepared by the Massachusetts Educational Board when seventy five out of hundred students that took part in the research could not apply the knowledge they got from the most recent science classes to real life situation.
