ab: From the text: For decades, understanding has been considered as a basic
theme of interest and a research object in mathematics education. In
this theoretical overview paper we present a integrative framework for
organizing the diversity of results that emerge from the different
studies on mathematical understanding and its interpretation. The
proposal is applied onto a representation of relevant literature that
has arise in the area over the last two decades. With this overview we
seek to provide an useful reference for: (a) advancing towards a better
insight of understanding in mathematics, (b) establishing the specific
limitations and open questions that demarcate the boundaries of
understanding and interpretation in mathematics, and (c) orienting its
future study using a shared base of consolidated knowledge.
