Philosophie des mathematiques et formation des professeurs stagiaires

are generally in agreement with students views on mathematics but sometimes,

education in philosophy and history of sciences can be helpful in allowing teachers to
become conscious that beyond knowledge, they impart a certain vision of mathematics
and science.
