ab: Summary: If everyone agrees that logic is needed to do mathematics, there
are divergences concerning the role of mathematical logic in acquiring
the necessary and sufficient knowledge in this area. In France today
there are new syllabuses in which notions of logic are explicitly
mentioned. How do teachers integrate them into their teaching? In this
paper, through a study of the French syllabuses and textbooks, I show
the strong constraints and ill-defined conditions for this teaching of
logic notions. I also describe the contents of an in-service training
course for teachers, which aims to give them tools for this teaching.
