Additional Notes: This paper is adapted from my plenary address at the International Congress on Mathematical Education in Copenhagen, 5 July 2004. Variants on this were presented also as my Retiring Presidential Address to the American Mathematical Society in Phoenix, Arizona, January 2004, and to the Center for Proficiency in the Teaching of Mathematics at the University of Michigan, December 2004. I am greatly indebted to my colleague Deborah Ball for generous discussions and critical feedback on its construction.
