Creative thinking is important!
Creative thinking involves the use of imagination, communication skills, problem-solving, mathematics, scientific thinking, and interpreting information.

Choices, comparisons, entertaining new ideas, and formulating personal responses to these problems are all important ingredients in creative thinking.
