From the beginning, ANN has focused on conceptual understanding, sense-making, and valuing the informal and alternative ways students solve problems. Reading through back issues, you'll find none of it feels dated. Each issue is full of great problems you can use in your next class certainly, but it is also full of the energy and joy of 25 years of teachers comparing notes with each other, trying to find more universal truths in their instruction.
