The conventional approach to education is to provide information detailing certain descriptions and procedures that are found in identified subjects such as Mathematics, Physics and Biology. Each of those subjects contains a sequence of content topics to be covered in class, one after the other.
Often the focus of learning in conventional approaches is giving students a lecture or an article to read and then set standardised questions based upon the information given. The expected solutions to the questions are usually limited to the information given to students. Typically then, solutions are pre-determined by the teacher and are linked to narrowly set context-specific learning objectives.
