Yet, as the earlier chapters have discussed, there are those behaviors that provide valuable, actually essential, means for making headway toward gaining clarity when none is evident. In the amorphous “middle ground,” where we are not at the point of resolving the difficulty with an explicit move but rather at an uncertain distance, we need to draw upon some mental action, some heuristic(s) that can help us move through the confusion to clearer ground. As mathematics educators, it is here we have opportunity to share the fund of mathematical agency, the collection of thoughtful actions that have served the mathematics community in its creative and dedicated past, to enrich our mathematics students’ thinking and lives.

100; capitals in original). ) And seven decades later, that focus continues. The NCT M has in recent years produced Professional Standards for Teaching Mathematics and Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (1991; 2000), where habits of mind can be seen to be a foundational concern. ” In discussing problem-solving for grades 6–8, they mention specific mathematical heuristics that would serve to develop a more mathematically able problemsolver.  3, Principles and Standards for School Mathematics).
