Geometry Strategy

SUMMARY This work presents reflections of an activity carried through with a group of pupils of Superior Ensino of the course of Full Licenciatura in Pedagogia of a Public University of the State of Par. The objective of the experience was to investigate in that way an activity with mockups potencializa the learning of geometric concepts. The data had been collected through a questinrio with opened questions, being analyzed in this work the relative answers to the interest of the pupils for the didactic activity, as well as the pertinent results on the process of teach-learning and the formation of the professors for the education of geometry. CONTEXTUALIZAO OF THE DIDACTIC EXPERIENCE? ON THE EDUCATION OF MATHEMATICS AND ACTIVITIES THAT APPROACH WHO LEARN OF WHAT IT IS NECESSARY TO LEARN. Geometry with its changeable dimensions and its importance for the development of the child, consequently requires including studies that they express resulted significant concernentes to education and learning of the geometric content.

Although the innumerable ones ramifications that can be worked the questions on geometry, our stories are come back toward activities elaborated and presented in classroom. Leaving of basic geometric concepts (segments of straight line, polygons, figures bi and tri-mensionais), we search to relate them it daily and the partner-cultural reality of licenciandos pupils of the initial series of a Public University of the State of Par, whose campus it is located in the capital, Belm. We objectify to analyze a potencializadora activity of learnings of basic concepts of geometry, as for example, plain and space space, area, figures. We opt to working with aspects that could be related to the civil construction thus they were next to the reality to the pupils. Therefore we can relate easily with spaces and so proper forms to discipline Mathematics. The work in classroom with mockups, this direction, potencializa to the pupil a more significant geometry, in the conceptualization of Moreira (1982), therefore it works with situations next to the reality to educating.
