In this chapter I discuss the role of examples in the learning of mathematics and in everyday thought processes. I discussconcept formationrole of examplesthought processes, everydayconjecture formation, and conjecture verification in mathematics and in everyday thought processes. Thus, I emphasize again that the domain of mathematical thinking is not an “isolated island.” It is strongly connected to the domain of everyday thought processes.
