Resumen


En el artículo se analizan las diferentes soluciones que un grupo de 15 profesores de matemáticas propuso para resolver un problema rutinario de aritmética, con el objetivo de identificar qué elementos específicos puede aportar el uso de tareas con múltiples soluciones para la formación y actualización docente. La posición teórica que sustenta este trabajo tiene como elemento fundamental la identificación y discusión de rutas de solución para fortalecer el conocimiento matemático y didáctico de los profesores, y favorecer el desarrollo de una postura crítica respecto a su práctica profesional.
