What is the nature of typical problem-solving situations where elementary-but-powerful mathematical constructs and conceptual systems are needed for success beyond school in a technology-based age of information? What kind of “mathematical thinking” is emphasized in these situations? What does it mean to “understand” the most important ideas and abilities that are needed in the preceding situations?
