Abstract [en]

The Programme of International Student Assessment (PISA) and Trendsin International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) create muchinternational interest in those countries perceived as high achieving. Onesuch system, rarely acknowledged, is Flanders, the Dutch-speaking regionof Belgium. In this paper I present the results of focused analyses of foursequences of video-taped mathematics lessons taught to students aged 10to 14 years. These confirmed a mathematics education tradition drawingon two well-known curricular movements. The first presents mathematicsas a Bourbakian set of interconnected concepts. The second exploitsrealistic problems in its presentation of mathematics.
