Abstract

In this paper we present a proposal for teaching how to graph functions on the basis of the teaching theory of didactical situations implemented by the French author Guy Brousseau. The proposal is aimed at students in 12th grade in highschool (USA) or in a freshman calculus course. We use the TI-92 graphic calculator as a teaching aid.
