Introducing pupils to theoretical thinking: the case of algebra

Abstract : Within the theoretical framework of Vygotsky's theory, the paper presents a teaching experiment concerning the introduction of pupils to algebraic theoretical thinking. Starting from the results of a previous study project concerning the use of Cabrì Gèométre to introduce pupils to geometry theory, the experiment is based on the use a algebra microworld "L'Algebrista". Outlines of the classroom experimentation are followed by the analysis of some protocols, according the Vygotskian theory of semiotic mediation.
