La pratique des problèmes ouverts en mathématiques en moyenne section de maternelle

Abstract : This research focuses on open problems in the first cycle of primary school (4 years old), through two situations: “rails” and “traffic jams” games. Skills involved in solving open problems are learning to seek, validate your essays, and argue. According to theoretical contributions, in the first classes, language development does not allow pupils to have good wording to argue or validate their answer. In this research, it appears that the practice of open problems allows 4 years old pupils to learn to search by engaging in a resolution process, with tests and mistakes. In addition, they can partially validate their answers by themselves. As language is limited at this age, some validations require the support of the teacher, especially for the problem of traffic jams. Teacher support is also essential when it comes to teaching 4 years old pupils to talk about their procedures.
