School Collections and the Research in History of Mathematical Education

Diogo Franco Rios Laura Leal Moreira About the authors

ABSTRACT

We present reflections on the treatment, preservation, organization, and availability of school documents carried out within the scope of the Project Study to Teach: mathematical practices and knowledge in normal schools in Rio Grande do Sul (1889-1970), more particularly from work experiences at the Instituto Estadual de Educação Assis Brasil in Pelotas. To this end, we will bring dialogues and approximations with scientificprofessional fields that deal with the preservation of the collections, which were essential for the work that we do and that point to the importance of an interdisciplinary dialogue between these fields when conducting research in the History of Mathematical Education with these collections.
