LARA, Isabel Cristina Machado de. The legitimization of mathematical knowledge through national examination. Est. Aval. Educ. [online]. 2011, vol.22, n.50, pp.491-514. ISSN 0103-6831.

This article presents an analysis of contents listed by INEP, during for 1998-2005 period, especially the specific and general contents of the Undergraduate Mathematics Course which are seen like one of the government's strategies created by MEC (Ministry of Education and Culture) and its partners, in order to evaluate undergraduate courses through national exams. This intends to check not only its regularities and discontinuities but also its effects on the selection of contents to be part of the student's syllabus in the complete Undergraduate Mathematics Course. Through an analysis of these contents, which are taken as fragments that constitute the necessary knowledge of the future Mathematics teacher and which are legitimated not only by the National Curricular Guidelines but also by the guidelines of the exam, it will be possible to come up with a standard of normalization to produce the ideal Mathematics teacher, who is increasingly influenced by information and communication technologies and by the present discussions in the context of Mathematics Education.
