This approach seems to be particularly effective with socially disadvantaged and culturally different students. The authors argue that childrens cognitive functions cannot be viewed as following a natural maturational path: they should be actively constructed during the educational process.

The Rigorous Mathematical Thinking (RMT) model is based on two major theoretical approaches - Vygotskys theory of psychological tools and Feuersteins concept of mediated learning experience. The book starts with general cognitive tools that are essential for all types of problem solving and then moves to mathematically specific cognitive tools and methods for utilizing these tools for mathematical conceptual formation.

The application of the RMT model in various urban classrooms demonstrates how mathematics education standards can be reached even by the students with a history of educational failure who were considered hopeless underachievers.
