1. The critical conflicts between traditional math instruction and effective progressive schooling
2. How a variety of computational technologies allow students to be mathematicians, meaningfully explore new knowledge domains, and increase achievement
3. Creating a new diet of mathematics that kids can love rather than tricks to teach a math they hate
