The discussion concludes with three themes that have been developed throughout the preceding chapters. The notions of the developmental/evaluative dichotomy, the development of APOS Theory through mechanisms similar to those used in the theory, and the future of APOS Theory are discussed. The chapter provides “APOS Theory at a glance” and ends with some final thoughts.
