The book by Sierpinska (1994) represents an important step forward, when discerning between understanding acts and processes and when relating " good understanding " of a mathematical situation (concept, theory, problem) to the sequence of acts of overcoming obstacles specific to this situation.

INTRODUCTION Understanding mathematics, visually and verbally Educators would tend to agree that a major aim of teaching mathematics is for students to develop understanding, even if it can be difficult to conceptualize this understanding fully (Sfard, 1994: Sierpinska, 1994).

We have based our analyses of the data on an assumed correspondence between Sierpinska's model of theoretical thinking (2000) and Harel and Sowder's (1996) classification of proof schemes.
Several theories of understanding seemed helpful (Hiebert & Carpenter, 1992; Pirie & Kieren, 1992; Sierpinska, 1994; Skemp, 1987). The theories agreed on one point, the location of understanding is in the mind of the individual.
Sierpinska (1994) suggested three ways in comprehending the meaning of understanding in mathematics – acts of understanding, the understanding that occurs from the acts of
