Pour une didactique contextuelle, quelques exemples en mathématiques

Abstract : This text tries to show on some supposed best examples, that the question underlying the journal Contextes et Didactique is central, not marginal. So we will study the question of the first teaching of numbers, an object whose universality is clear, showing that, to be effective, this teaching should be explicitly situated in a social and epistemological context, and that the modernist reform of the 1970s led to the opposite: why and how it is finally necessary to understand it, since it is imperative to return to a socially efficient education. A didactic analysis tool will be put to work in an explicitly anthropological version: the notion of fundamental situation for a body of knowledge.
