Dissertações e teses em História e Epistemologia da Matemática: contribuições para a abordagem da Geometria Espacial no Ensino Médio

By Rafael José Alves do Rego Barros and Iran Abreu Mendes


The present article adopts as an object of study dissertations and theses in History and Epistemology of Mathematics of Brazil in the period between 1990 and 2010 of the stricto sensu postgraduate programs that present historical information on topics related to Space Geometry (High School), The objective is to investigate the didactic potential of the Research. We also suggest didactic referrals that can somehow be used in our teaching practice, provided that there is a treatment of this information before its application in the classroom so that the content can be taught in the best way possible according to students’cognitive potential and also to the reality of each school environment. In order to select the theses and dissertations, we used the three current trends in the history of mathematics, according to the cartography of the researches in this area, carried out by Mendes (2014). To identify if a study covered High School content , we used as a parameter the areas of knowledge of the National High School Examination (SEM). This article may be useful to widely disseminate these publications so as to enable the dissemination of the mathematical contents that can approach the concepts of Space Geometry in High School, for once these dissertations and theses are defended, they are forgotten in libraries
