New examine in arithmetic schooling offers with the complexity of the maths' lecture room. the study room instructing scenario constitutes a pertinent unit of research for study into the ternary didactic courting which binds lecturers, scholars and mathematical wisdom. the study room is taken into account as a posh didactic method, which deals the researcher a chance to gauge the bounds of the liberty that's left in regards to offerings in regards to the wisdom to learn and the methods of organizing the scholars' studying, whereas giveing upward thrust to the learn of interrelations among 3 major parts of the educating approach the: mathematical content material to study and realized, administration of many of the time dimensions, and task of the trainer who prepares and manages the category, to the good thing about the scholars' wisdom and the lecturers' personal adventure. This quantity specializes in school room events as a unit of research, the paintings of the trainer, and is strongly anchored in unique theoretical frameworks. The contributions are formulated from the point of view of 1 or extra theoretical frameworks yet they're tackled through empirical investigations.

But there is a tendency to use it in a way that reduces the possibilities of monitoring the didactical properties of each phase. In a problem situation there may occur a large number of sometimes unexpected situations of (presumably) autonomous learning. But the effectiveness of these phases of apparently autonomous learning depends, in principle, on the actual features of the aspects of the situation that are left to the students. In our research, we have been interested in knowing to what extent situations - like the problem situations described above - that cannot, theoretically, be devolved to the students, make it nevertheless possible for the students to produce forms of reasoning.

A new reasoning is learned when it is promoted from being just a particular means of solving a given problem to a "universal" means of solving all problems of a certain type, and becomes integrated as such with the subject's knowledge. In an autonomous situation, the reasoning is based on induction, but this induction is supported by a chain of inferences that can be made explicit. In the third case, the autonomous learning cannot back up this integration, which can only result from [more or less direct] teaching.
