Discrete Mathematics in Lower School Grades? Situation and Possibilities in Italy

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter


This paper presents an overview of the Italian situation in teaching discrete mathematics in primary and middle school, taking into account the national teaching guidelines and their connection with the subject. We describe research conducted with about 150 teachers, interviewed in a preliminary questionnaire. The data collected shows, for all teaching grades, interest in having more discrete mathematics in the school curriculum even if there are some difficulties in teaching it and in inserting it in the usual mathematical activities at school, mostly related to teachers’ knowledge and self-confidence about the subject. We also discuss results and future plans for a continuing research project in the field. We describe in the conclusion a design research project involving teachers in the activity-designing process, aimed at bringing new mathematical knowledge and competences to students
