Birthplace: Brazil

He holds a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from the University of Campinas/UNICAMP (1980) and master's (1989) and Ph.D. (1992) in Mathematics Education by the University of East Anglia and Cambridge University/England, respectively. He is currently a Professor at the Federal University of São Carlos, Sorocaba Campus. Acts in the area of teacher training in mathematics, with an emphasis on: (1) teaching and learning process based on mathematical modelling, and (2) evaluation and curriculum development. In the last years, oriented: (a) Course?s Works Conclusion in Mathematics; (b) Scientific Research Works (IC) financed by FAPESP and CNPq (IC Junior); (c) Monographs of Postgraduate Courses "Lato Sensu" in Mathematical Modeling; and, (d) Professional master's dissertations, with scholarships from the Department of Education of the State of São Paulo, Brazil. Currently, orients a Course?s Work Conclusion in mathematics, at the Federal University of São Carlos, Sorocaba Campus. The main published works were: (i) in 1997, co-authored with Guida de Abreu and Alan j.
