ab: The authors pose the question ’What does it mean to have a mathematics

they have moved from viewing problem solving as separate from the rest
of the mathematics curriculum to regarding the use of problems as a
mechanism for focusing on the ’coherent development of important
mathematical ideas that are core to the curriculum’.
