Abstract:

After a brief review of school education systems, present and past, I examine whether the school of today provides an "environment" for knowing and understanding. I will give examples of the development of some educational concepts and suggest a "constructivist" approach towards them. These concepts will be from several disciplines : arithmetic (number), geometry (proof), hydrostatics (Archimedes' principle),mechanics (accelerated motion), astronomy (the solar system), biology (theory of evolution), social science (technology, resources, labour).
