In contesto scolastico quello delle difficolt� in matematica è un fenomeno importante sia consistent with los angeles sua diffusione sia in keeping with le conseguenze che ha a vari livelli: dal disagio personale con cui viene vissuto da molti allievi, all'atteggiamento negativo che larghi strati della popolazione costruiscono verso los angeles nostra disciplina, fino al calo di iscrizioni ai corsi di laurea scientifici.
Di fronte a queste difficolt� , che spesso si manifestano in comportamenti quali l. a. rinuncia a provare o il rispondere a caso, l'azione didattica finalizzata al recupero è in genere un'azione locale, che nasce dall'individuazione di errori in step with poi intervenire sulle conoscenze ritenute necessarie in line with rispondere correttamente. Ma questo tipo di intervento si rivela in genere fallimentare, e l'insegnante - insieme all'allievo - matura un senso di impotenza e di frustrazione.
Il fatto è che questo approccio tende advert ignorare l. a. variet� degli scopi che allievi diversi si possono porre davanti advert uno stesso compito, scopi non necessariamente interni alla matematica: consistent with un intervento efficace è necessario allora spostare l'attenzione dagli errori che l'allievo commette all'allievo che li commette, alla ricerca dei motivi delle sue azioni.
