Mastery denotes a focus on achieving a deeper understanding of fewer topics, rather than  accelerating into new content, through problem solving, questioning and encouraging deep mathematical thinking.

Mastery means being able to use knowledge appropriately, flexibly and creatively and to

      apply it in new and unfamiliar situations.
