ab: Summary: Based on a survey of summaries of courses on the foundations of
mathematics, from mathematics teacher education programs in the
southern part of Brazil, and some remarks on the legislation related to
the course syllabuses, we discuss the meaning of the word
“foundations" in order to reflect on the proposals of these issues in
the courses, which will be undergoing reformulation. The opinions of
students in one of these courses regarding the meaning of the term
“foundations", as well as the data obtained from the survey and the
remarks regarding legislation, may lead to considerations about the
possibilities for a better qualification of the initial education of
mathematics teachers.
