Mendes, Iran Abreu; da Silva, Carlos Aldemir Farias – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2018
In this article we present our arguments in favor of a teaching of mathematics by means of problematization and investigation, one that includes in the classroom multiple ways and meanings for the students to read the world around them. In this respect, we propose a teaching-learning process of mathematics grounded on the relationships between…
