## Abstract

PISA problems relate mathematics to real-life because it is expected of students to apply their mathematical knowledge to solve problems set in real-world context. In that way students can get insight of their own capabilities and competencies where mathematics is involved and can easily decide if that is something they wish to dedicate their life to. Because of the correlation with real-life, these kind of problems could be used in schools and teachers should use it in order to encourage students to use mathematics in problems they are most likely to occur someday. Not all the problems are adequate to be taught and learned in schools because of the time needed to process more complicated ones. Of course, a school could always provide additional classes for students who are interested in resolving these kind of problems. PISA problems stimulate way of thinking and individual research and because of that students can gain more control of their work and achieve more satisfaction with their accomplishments as well. It is unfortunate that students don’t correlate PISA problems with functions they are learning in school and they should be educated to pay more attention why they are learning mathematics in the first place. That way, math could become fun, results and grades would be better and general thinking about mathematics as science would improve.
