CORICA, Ana Rosa. Learning Mathematic at the University: the viewpoint of the first year students. Rev. electrón. investig. educ. cienc. [online]. 2009, vol.4, n.1, pp.10-27. ISSN 1850-6666.

This work integrates a project that studies the characteristics of Mathematics teaching at university level, in the dimensions: knowledge, students and teachers. In this research didactical aspects are tackled from the Anthropological Theory of Didactics framework (Chevallard, 1999), and cognitive aspects from the Theory of Critical Meaningful Learning (Moreira; 2000). Here, the results of a test made by university students of a Calculus course are discussed. The main results show that, these students prefer to play down their topos in the study process. They are few compromised and responsible about learning, since they are interested in acquire information for to pass, in lieu of planning meaningful and critical learning.

Keywords : University; Students; Mathematical; Meaningful Learning.
