Faced with the need to conceptualize the school mathematical curriculum and generate greater meanings in classrooms, a didactic approach based on the principles of Ethno mathematics makes it possible to recognize and present the different mathematical knowledge present in student's daily lives in motivating didactic situations. In this perspective, the research carried out between April and December 2019, in a FAPESP project of scientific initiation by student Manoel de Souza Lamim Netto, will be continued, under the guidance of Profa. Dr. Renata Cristina Geromel Meneghetti, case 2018 /25942-2, which took place in the context of elementary education. In this project we aim toapply this proposal in high school, in order to contribute with alternative methodological proposals for the teaching and learning process of mathematics also in this level of teaching of Basic Education, from the teaching-learning methodology through the Resolution of Problems, contextualized to the sociocultural reality of the students in the effort to connect formal mathematics to the cultural context of the school community.
