In this article, the author describes how he tried to improve the mathematical learning behavior of his ninth grade pupils. He relates that in order to promote mathematical thinking and asserting behavior, it was necessary for him to instigate a change in milieu, with a corresponding change to the didactic contract that had previously been established in his class. He also relates that change he adopted produced positive results as his students became more open to tasks that promote mathematical thinking. (Contains 1 figure and 2 notes.)
