## Abstract

This chapter is aimed at bridging the gap between research on general giftedness and research in mathematics education. This is accomplished by designing a model of mathematical giftedness that qualifies problem-solving acts in relation to components of general giftedness. The problem-solving acts considered in the model are (a) solving a problem in a particular mode of using problem-solving strategies, (b) solving a problem in different ways, and (c) posing related problems. The components of giftedness used in themodel are creativity, efficiency, and task commitment. The model is illustrated using an insight word problem.
