Alves, Francisco Regis Vieira; Barros, Francisco Evamar – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2019
The study and interest of figurate numbers can be observed even in ancient Greece. On the other hand, it becomes very important the historical understanding about an evolutionary process and the particular generalization of such 2D, 3D and m-D figurate numbers and they remain the interest of current scientific investigations. On the other hand, in…

Alves, Francisco Regis Vieira; Dias, Marlene Alves – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2018
In the training of mathematics teachers in Brazil we can not disregard the historical and epistemological component aiming the transmission of mathematics through a real understanding of the nature of classic concepts and foundamental definitions to Mathematics, whether in the school context or in the academic context. In this sense, the present…

Alves, Francisco Regis Vieira – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2018
In Brazil we have identified a predilection of the authors of Mathematical History books for the discussion of the fundamentals of Differential and Integral Calculus. On the other hand, when we consider the teaching of Mathematics in the school context, it is essential to know the teaching of the historical and dynamic evolution of the concepts,…

Alves, Francisco Regis Vieira – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2018
The Professional Didactics (PD) and Didactics of Sciences (DC) have roots traditionally originated in France. While (PD) is interested in the process of adult learning, occurring in their work places, the (DC) shows greater attention to the field of action of teaching and learning of specific subjects and therefore in the action of the teacher in…

Alves, Francisco Regis Vieira – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2016
Admittedly, the study of Complex Analysis (CA) requires of the student considerable mental effort characterized by the mobilization of a related thought to the complex mathematical concepts. Thus, with the aid of the dynamic system Geogebra, we discuss in this paper a particular concept in CA. In fact, the notion of winding number v[f(gamma),P] =…

Alves, Francisco Regis Vieira; Catarino, Paula Maria Machado Cruz – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2016
The current research around the Fibonacci's and Lucas' sequence evidences the scientific vigor of both mathematical models that continue to inspire and provide numerous specializations and generalizations, especially from the sixties. One of the current of research and investigations around the Generalized Sequence of Lucas, involves it's…

Alves, Francisco Regis Vieira – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2015
We find several applications of the Dynamic System Geogebra--DSG related predominantly to the basic mathematical concepts at the context of the learning and teaching in Brasil. However, all these works were developed in the basic level of Mathematics. On the other hand, we discuss and explore, with DSG's help, some applications of the polynomial's…

Alves, Francisco Regis Vieira – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2014
Admittedly, the notion of generalized integrals in one parameter has a fundamental role. En virtue that, in this paper, we discuss and characterize an approach for to promote the visualization of this scientific mathematical concept. We still indicate the possibilities of graphical interpretation of formal properties related to notion of…

Alves, Francisco Regis Vieira – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2013
Admittedly, the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus-TFA holds an important role in the Complex Analysis-CA, as well as in other mathematical branches. In this article, we bring a discussion about the TFA, the Rouché's theorem and the winding number with the intention to analyze the roots of a polynomial equation. We propose also a description for a…
