Language in geometry classroom


The purpose of this paper is to examine how it is possible to relate the way that students perceive, act on and speak about objects in geometry class. We aim to identify conditions on the situation, role, place and contribution of the teacher that allow language to be operative in geometry class. Therefore, our contribution will provide a theoretical tool in construction, called "frequentation mode" and based on the analysis of a «transmitter-receiver " situation in a geometry classroom in France at primary school.
