The purpose of this study is to determine the type problems in algebra, geometry, and general mathematics that are most frequently used by high school graduates. The applicability of these mathematical operations to ordinary problems of daily life is to be decided by means of a survey among high school graduates who have had courses in algebra and geometry. An enumeration and analysis of the type problems that are most used by these graduates will give a much better conception of what should be taught in a general mathematics course. This investigation proposes to apply the criterion of usability in the determination of what type problems are best suited to a general mathematics course for secondary schools.
