Abstract This presentation will reflect on a number of mathematics education courses taught by  the author to prospective K-12 teachers. It will highlight the potential of technology- enhanced educational contexts in discovering new mathematical knowledge by  revisiting familiar concepts and models within the framework of “hidden mathematics  curriculum.” Situated addition, unit fractions, and Fibonacci numbers will motivate the  presentation leading to a mathematical frontier.
