AROCA ARAUJO, Armando. The teaching of analytic geometry in secondary school. rev.udcaactual.divulg.cient. [online]. 2019, vol.22, n.1, e1222.  Epub May 29, 2019. ISSN 0123-4226.

The research problem was to understand the why of the teaching of a set of topics that characterized a grade 10 Analytical Geometry course during a given period. The objective of this investigation was then to describe and analyze why the selection of said set of topics characterized the case study. To achieve this goal it was necessary to do ethnographic research in a classroom of a public educational institution located in northern Colombia. The methodology used responded to two moments: 1) A non-participant observation and its respective audiovisual record and transcript of 14 class sessions and the revision of notebooks and 2) The analysis of the information obtained in the previous moment led to the use of a methodology of bibliographic and documentary reviews on curricular development in the international and national context of the teaching of Analytical Geometry in secondary education to relate the analysis of why of the teaching of the set of topics with the aspects that emerged from said review. At the end it is contributed to the discussion about what could be the course of Analytical Geometry of grade 10.
