Why "mengajarkan" and not "mengajar"?

While both are transitive verbs, "mengajar" is usually used for school subjects and "mengajarkan" is used for other things. For example, "I teach math" = "Saya mengajar matematika". "I teach honesty to my children" = "Saya mengajarkan kejujuran kepada anak-anak saya".
