Comment sélectionner des exercices mathématiques historiques à présenter à des classes de collège ?

Abstract : The positive effect of using historic texts to teach mathematics has been proved by researchers working on the subject since some years now. The question that needs to be answered is: how to select such exercices in order to submit them to students? Using the mathematics curriculum for the french cycle 3 (6th grade only) and 4, and also two anthologies of historic texts (the propositions of Alcuin and the Greek Anthology), we elaborated a selection and categorization algorithm which can link any historic exercise to a notion from the curriculum and to the appropriate class level. We tested this algorithm by submitting some selected exercises to 7th and 8th grade classes. Our observations during these experiments showed us that that selection was relevant.
