## Abstract

The current study investigates Authentic Hi-Tech – AHiT math problems which were retrieved from the Hi-Tech industry and simplified for formal secondary school math lesson. We first characterize the AHiT math problems according to Schoenfeld's framework of problem solving. We then investigate the perceptions of two stakeholder groups: math experts and policymakers and math teachers with respect to the characteristics of the AHiT math problems and their feasibility. Based on the Delphi methodology, we employed two stages for analysis: an open-ended questionnaire to interview ten stakeholders, and subsequently a Likert-type questionnaire for collecting data from 40 stakeholders. Main results suggest two aspects that underlie the use of the AHiT math problems: the benefit for learners and the problem characterization.
