Le temps didactique dans l'enseignement des mathématiques: approche des phénomènes de régulation des hétérogénéités didactiques

Abstract : Time and its influence on teaching are at the heart of numerous debates on education, which are often also concerned with the issue of school inequalities: how heterogeneity is dealt with, how teaching is differentiated, and so forth. “Didactical time”, as a concept that can be defined as a process of creation and regulation of didactical heterogeneities, allows us to study how teaching processes operate temporally and brings new perspectives to important issues related to it. Eight classes of 9-10-year-old pupils have been studied. Teachers had to organize teaching sequences on relational calculation, over periods which varied by twice as much (legal time). Comparing the consequences on learning and the different teaching organisational modes led to the conclusion that the constraints on the progress of didactical time are less related to legal time than to the milieu, in a didactic meaning, that structures the teacher's work. The concept of “didactical visibility” in introduced to define this milieu. The thesis shows in which ways the various injunctions, designed to differentiate teaching and to deal with heterogeneity, broadly used to justify the current focus on time as a condition of successful teaching, paradoxically result in the diminution of didactical visibility of the teacher, and have harmful effects on the progress of didactical time, leading to failing the primary aims of efficient and egalitarian teaching.
