This book has two primary goals: On the level of theory development, the book clarifies the nature of an emerging "models and modeling perspective" about teaching, learning, and problem solving in mathematics and science education. On the level of emphasizing practical problems, it clarifies the nature of some of the most important elementarybutpowerful mathematical understandings that Americans are likely to need as foundations for success in the present and future technologybased information age. The relevant chapters of this book are reviewed individually in ZDM/MATHDI. Supplements to the chapters with digital resources, transcripts and other samples of students' work, as well as research tools can be found at: http://tcct.soe.purdue.edu/books and journals/models and modeling/.
