ab: The purpose of this article is to contribute to the dialogue about the
notion of advanced mathematical thinking by offering an alternative
characterization for this idea, namely advancing mathematical activity.
We use the term advancing (versus advanced) because we emphasize the
progression and evolution of studentsâ€™ reasoning in relation to their
previous activity. We also use the term activity, rather than thinking.
This shift in language reflects our characterization of progression in
mathematical thinking as acts of participation in a variety of
different socially or culturally situated mathematical practices. For
these practices, we emphasize the changing nature of studentsâ€™
mathematical activity and frame the process of progression in terms of
multiple layers of horizontal and vertical mathematizing. (Authorsâ€™
