ab: Summary: The curricular movement known as Modem Mathematics aimed at the
transformation of representations and practices in school mathematics.
Its study provides us with ways of understanding how these changes came
about. The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the understanding
of the ways in which representations of school mathematics gradually
were influenced by ideas from the Modern Mathematics movement, how
these new ideas merged into local educational traditions, and how they
were transformed into meaningful practice. This work is centred on the
Portuguese context from the middle 1950s to the middle 1960s, and
builds on Chervel’s notion of school culture and Gruzinski’s
discussion of connected histories.
