The Mathematics Enthusiast






The present work presents some examples of data originated from a set of investigations developed in Brazil, at the Federal Institute of Education, Science and Technology of the State of Ceará - IFCE, in the context of teacher education, and the consideration of elements of a historical, mathematical, and evolutionary nature. Thus, from a perspective of theoretical complementarity involving the research elements derived from the notion of the didactic engineering for development and some assumptions of the French aspect of the professional didactics, two sets of data are discussed. The first set involved research carried out between 2017 and 2020. The second set considered involved studies still under development in Brazil, considering the period of 2020 - 2023. The historical landscape of investigation rests on considering the recurring number sequences of Fibonacci, Lucas, Pell, Jacobsthal, Coordonier or Padovan, Perrin, Mersenne, Oresme, Naraynna, and Leonardo. Furthermore, in a broad sense, the study aims to provide a learning scenario for the teacher, affected by a perspective of mathematical knowledge evolution, including the repercussions and applications with current technology.
