Combien? a Software to Teach Students How to Solve Combinatorics Exercises

Abstract : In the Combien? (How Many?) project, we built pedagogical interfaces to help students to learn combinatorics. In this paper, we situate combinatorics teaching in the French curriculum and define a pedagogical objective. Then, we present the solving method on which the interfaces are based. Combinatorics problems are classified according to their solving schemata. Each interface corresponds to a class of problems. It allows the student to build a solution and detects the errors incrementally. Then, we show the pedagogical progression inherent to the use of these interfaces. Finally we describe the experiments in different contexts (learners, teachers).
