ETUDE DES PRATIQUES D'ENSEIGNEMENT DES MATHEMATIQUES AU NIVEAU DE L'ECOLE MOYENNE (11-15) DANS LE CAS DE L'ALGEBRE EN FRANCE ET AU LIBAN

Abstract : Our study concerns the characterization of professional practices of mathematics teachers during the phases of correction related to algebraic expressions at grade 7 in Lebanon and grade 8 in France.
Our research focused on the way teachers organize these correction phases, concerning both mathematics knowledge and interactions with students. We also looked for regularities of a teacher practice.
We studied official curricula and mathematics textbooks related to the intermediate classes. We elaborated and analyzed two questionnaires : the first one is for the students and concerns the terms used for calculating algebraic expressions and their validation procedures. The second one is for the teachers and concerns terms used and the analysis of students mistakes. We also videotaped two classes in each country during the whole sequence "algebraic expressions".
Our theoretical framework includes the anthropological theory of didactics (Chevallard, 1999). We studied the types of tasks "develop, reduce algebraic expressions", in relation with the actual techniques in France and in Lebanon. We showed that the teachers put forward very few theoretical elements enabling to justify techniques. Students are thus not prepared to implement sufficient control procedures.
We showed some regularities in practices for each of the four professors both in their organization of the knowledge to be taught during the whole sequence and the management of validity of answers and students interactions.
