Abstract

The study of didactic devices with the characteristics of RSC in the teachers' mathematics formation at an Argentine university has led to the future teachers elaboration of their own ideas about of the management of the mentioned device at the Argentine high school. In this paper, results of a semi-structured interview to future teachers are shown. The teachers were attending the last year of the teaching training college at an Argentine university. Our intention was to know the receipt that the future teachers have in the management of an education under the characteristics of RSC to manage the above device in their educational practices. One of the difficulties that the future teachers signal is to select the problematic question that allows to stimulate and to provoke the whole process of study. The choice of the mentioned question is assigned to the same teachers. This constitutes a limitation as for the comprehension and later management of an education for RSC.
