L'espace et la géométrie à l'école primaire : comment enseigner la géométrie dans l’espace à l’école primaire ?

Abstract : How to teach solid geometry considering peculiarities of this teaching ? This report tries to solve this problem by means of other questions : what are the peculiarities of the teaching of geometry and in particular solid geometry ? What is the place of this teaching in the current primary school curriculum and in the former curricula ? How do textbooks lead this teaching ? And finally, how to build a relevant and explicite module of learning around solids for pupils of year 4, year 5 and year 6 ? Solid geometry involves geometry skills and spatial skills. This work dealt with a spatial skill in particular : the planar representation of three dimensional objects. In order to obtain some answers, this work have been devided in several stages : a study of primary school curricula to extract this skill, a study of textbooks to know which choices make textbooks to represent solids in particular and an experiment in a classroom of a learning situation to know the capacities of pupils to represent and to describe solids. As a result, an explicit and relevant teaching of solids is possible only if the teacher takes into account the both types of implemented skills and if he adapts the differents elements of his apprenticeships : learning situations, lessons, etc. The sketches of answers found by this work have helped to build a learning module about solids in year 4, year 5 and year 6.
