• Presentation in auditorium of a geometric exercise based on locus and construction with ruler and compass.
• Presentation of Lagrange’s theory about foundation of calculus, based on a project of Danny J. Beckers.
• Quadrature of the parabola. Analysis of Archimedes’ both mechanical and geometric method.
• Translation of a part of the thesis «Die Krise der Anschauung», (Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht in Göttingen, 1986) of Klaus Thomas Volkert. Abstract and Power point presentation.
• Analysis of the research framework of the articles:
 «The scientific object of Didactics of Mathematics: Assumptions and Conclusions», D. Chassapis
 «How do theories influence the research on teaching and learning limits of functions?», Christer Bergstein, Linköpings Universitet.
 «Promoting students’ graphical understanding of the calculus», John S. Berry, Melvin A. Nyman.
