Mathematical Sciences Group Research Seminar
Thursday March 22nd 2001
Room 677, Institute of Education, 20 Bedford Way, London WC1H OAL
5pm to 6.30pm
Professor Mich=E8le Artigue
IREM, Universiti=E9 Paris
The Transition Between School and University Mathematics: the case of=20
the derivative
Transition between high school and university mathematics is today=20
recognised as increasingly problematic for students. In this seminar,=20
Professor Artigue will analyse the transition process and associated=20
educational issues as the move between two mathematical cultures.
After a short introduction to this "probl=E9matique" and theoretical=20
frame, she will analyse transition between high school and university=20
through a particular lens, by focusing on one mathematical notion and=20
its environment: the notion of derivative. Professor Artigue will=20
try to characterise the way the two institutional cultures treat the=20
derivative, identify continuities and discontinuities and analyse the=20
way students cope with discrepancies.
=46inally, Professor Artigue will discuss the potential of such=20
research work for helping the educational system to deal more=20
efficiently with problems of transition.
