Mathematique et Informatique, Aspect Didactique (Mathematics and Informatics, the Didactic Aspect).
Both mathematics and informatics share common characteristics. Several didacticians propose therefore to define didactic situations permitting learners to "co-construct" knowledge of mathematics and informatics. In this document, the idea is resumed and a certain number of "functional structures" are proposed. These sets of problems take on a special social interest and introduce ideas, methods, and useful techniques to one domain or the other. The junction between the two disciplines is possible thanks to the introduction of equipment for calculations and plotting curves. (Author)
