Conception et acceptation de la démonstration en seconde

Abstract : Demonstration is the mathematical flagship activity ; still its conception and teaching seem to create a debate among teachers and students. First, the purpose of this essay is to expose the principles, the goals and the multiple facets of a proof such as the relation between the searching and the writing parts and the criterions of acceptability used among mathematical communities. Then, the programmes and their support materials are analyzed in the perspective of the previous points. Second a sequence is set up with high school students : first students have to answer to a questionnaire for a diagnostic evaluation then they are put in a situation of research and have to write their own proof. Conclusion is allowed thanks to the analysis of some of their own proofs with their criterions wich differ from the previous one in many ways.
