In this introduction, we provide a brief overview of the goals of the Design of Learning Environments and Curricula working group. We then describe the three chapters that follow this introduction, and that emerged from the working group discussions, each of which focus on a different aspect of designing environments for mathematics learning, namely, consideration of the mathematics itself (and how it might change with the digital technology), the learner (and her different psychological and cognitive approaches to that content might change) and the curriculum (and its specific exigencies and opportunities).
