In this paper we present a proposal for teaching based on the Research and Study Paths (RSP) involving Mathematics and Physics together at the Secondary School. We adopt the ideas of the Anthropological Theory of didactic (ATD). The Research and Study Path (RSP) and the Praxeological Model of Reference (PMR) are described and analyzed. We carried out an implementation with N=68 students of 5th year at the secondary school. Some results obtained in this experience are described.
Contribution/ Originality
This study is one of very few studies which have investigated the implementation of Research and Study Paths (RSP) in usual courses of secondary school. This teaching by research requires of the joint study of physical and mathematical notions, in the math classes, and in this sense also this is one contribution.
