Abstract [en]

The design and conduct of calculus courses has been and is an object of curriculardebates and reforms. By the reconstruction of the establishment of the mathematicalsub-area now called ‘calculus’ and its fundamental theorem as a piece ofinstitutionalized mathematical knowledge for the purpose of its reproduction, wereconsider the notion of knowledge recontextualization within the field of knowledgeproduction by showing that standardization of knowledge evolves in a dynamicrelationship with its production. Interviews with mathematicians suggest that they, asteachers, create different recontextualization principles. In undergraduate teachingcalculus they suggest to include the criteria of the field of knowledge production (e.g.proof) for the future ‘insiders’, while for those who will not pursue a career withinthis field, the ‘outsiders’, the criteria change towards computational efficiency.
