Motivated by work done with pre-service teachers in a problem-solving and advanced secondary mathematics courses, this paper shows how computing technologies, including a spreadsheet, Maple, and graphing software enable an informal journey into a hidden aspect of the formal content of the pre-college mathematics curriculum dealing with partitions of integers. This simply formulated yet remarkably profound concept is implicitly present at all levels of the curriculum and may be viewed as a hidden thread. By using an elementary problem found in the mathematics curriculum of a rural school in upstate New York as an example, it is suggested that providing teachers with a deeper perspective on a seemingly mundane task informed by technology has the potential to transform teachers into researchers and curriculum developers in school mathematics.
