Images of Mathematics and Mathematicians among Undergraduate Students of Education

Ricardo Scucuglia Rodrigues da Silva, Gabriel Souza Gregorutti

Resumo


In our research, we investigated the role of production of digital mathematical performance (DMP) in pre-service teacher education, regarding the (de)construction of images of mathematics and mathematicians. We report a qualitative case study conducted with undergraduate students of Education, whose elaborated two sets of drawings in order to artistically represent and disseminate both public and alternative images of mathematics and mathematicians. Students’ drawings were used to produce artistic digital videos, conceptualized as DMPs. In terms of findings, students’ public images reveal negative/stereotyped aspects. In contrast, alternative drawings depict positive/ideal images. The process of producing DMPs contributes to students’ education as pre-service teachers in respect of exploration and production of pedagogic content knowledge. It also promotes changes in students’ attitudes and believes about teaching and learning mathematics, engaging them into alternative forms of using digital media and the arts in mathematical activity.
