Resumen

Moçambique é uma sociedade multilingue e, consequentemente multicultural, com mais de 40 línguas nativas. Excluindo o Português e poucas de poucos imigrantes todas elas são línguas Bantu. Segundo o Censo Geral de 1997, somente 6,5% da população tinha o Português como língua mãe e, como primeira língua e destes 14% tinham idade inferior a 50 anos, e só 2.1% tinha 50 ou mais anos de idade.

Apesar deste panorama a língua de ensino em Moçambique é o Português, mesmo sabido que apenas menos de 5% de crianças ingressam na Escola sabendo comunicar nesta língua. As línguas dominantes no local onde a  pesquisa foi desenvolvida são: Ci-Changana, Ci-Ronga e Ci-Tshwa, as quais são, mutuamente, entendíveis entre os falantes.

O objectivo da pesquisa é (i) explorar o entendimento do estudante ao simbolismo algébrico, linguagem abstracta e lógica e (ii) relacionar este entendimento com o sucesso escolar na disciplina de matemática com a sua condição  socio-económica e linguística.

Para delimitar a área de estudo foram colocadas as seguintes questões de pesquisa: (1) quais são as estratégias preferidas pelos alunos quando resolvem problemas baseados na lógica em relação ao seu estatuto sócio-económico e linguístico? (2) em particular: Como é que a língua materna e o estatuto sócio-económico estão associados ao raciocínio e procedimentos dos alunos?

Como orientação teórica a pesquisa apoiu-se na abordagem discursiva de aprendizagem de matemática.

O presente artigo pretende, apoiado na etnomatemática, discutir a relação entre o raciocínio e os procedimentos dos alunos e a sua ligação com a sua língua materna e estatuto socio-económico.
