VARETTONI, Marcos y ELICHIRIBEHETY, Inés. Representation Logs used by Primary School Teachers: an exploratory study. Rev. electrón. investig. educ. cienc. [online]. 2010, vol.5, n.2, pp. 44-51. ISSN 1850-6666.
In this paper it is adopted a didactic perspective to analyze the results on the external representations and resolution frameworks used by Primary Education teachers when solving some problems that could be dealt with in their classes. The study tries to investigate the procedures performed, the anticipations proposed and the meaning of the mathematical concepts to be constructed. The results show that most teachers use symbolic-arithmetic representation logs to solve and that in very few cases they can combine more than one system of representation and use more than one framework.
