THE SITUATION BEFORE At the research frontiers of mathematics,  progress is satisfying and often  breathtaking. But at the undergraduate level, we seem  unable to convey the excitement, the  power, and the integrity of our subject. Most students see little or no mathematics  more modern than the 18th century.
