VITTORIO CHECCUCCI AND HIS CONTRIBUTIONS TO MATHEMATICS EDUCATION:
A HISTORICAL OVERVIEW
di Paolo Bussotti
Abstract
This study deals with Vittorio Checcucci's ideas and proposals
as to mathematics education.
The scopes of this work are twofold:
1) the first scope is historical: my aim is to reconstruct Checcucci's thought.
This is a novelty because almost no contribution dedicated to Checcucci
exists.
The few existing contributions are brief articles
whose aim is not to provide a general picture of his ideas;
2) the second scope is connected to mathematics education in the 21st century.
A series of argumentations will be proposed to prove that
many Checcucci's ideas could be fruitfully exploited nowadays.
For the first time, the thought of this mathematician is exposed
to non-Italian readers
because his ideas are worthy to be known, rethought and discussed
in an international context.
Key words: mathematics education, relations between theoretical and practical
mathematics in the teaching, experimentations in mathematics education.
