Computers in human behaviour, Learning by expanding: an activity theoretical approach to developmental research. As just mentioned above, didactic interactions between Tunisia and France in mathematics stem from the relationships between the APMEP and the ATSM created in , the oldest association of mathematics teachers in the Arab world and in Africa.

He presented the didactics of mathematics, its questions, concepts and research methods to a large audience of teachers, illustrating these with the research work he was developing on the teaching of rational and decimal numbers. Tisseron had taught mathematics to pre-service mathematics teachers at the ENS in Tunis in the seventies, and also didactics at the ENS in Bizerte in the eighties when a didactic course was introduced in the preparation of secondary mathematics teachers.
The decisive step for the development of didactics of mathematics as a research field in Tunisia occurred in fact in , with the accreditation of a graduate program in the didactics of mathematics DEA at the Institute for higher education and continuous training in Tunis ISEFC. Initially the DEA courses were taught by researchers from these teams, but gradually Tunisian scholars took them partially in charge. This institutional change led to modification of the organization of the program, and from the fall of , ISEFC was empowered to offer a Master of research in didactics of science and pedagogy.
The overall objective is ensuring a high level of training taking into account the multiple components of careers in science education. Eventually, a new Master in didactics of mathematics was set-up in October , aiming to be innovative and open to the international community.

Another important step for the institutionalization of the field was the creation of the Tunisian association of didactics of mathematics ATDM in This association provides an institutional status to the young community of didacticians of mathematics and supports the dissemination of its research activities and results. For instance, it organizes an annual seminar to which contribute both well-known international and Tunisian researchers, to allow the regular diffusion of new or on-going research and to promote exchanges and debates within the didactic community.
Since the establishment of the DEA, fifteen doctoral theses and more than forty DEA or Master dissertations have been defended, most of these under the co-supervision of French and Tunisian researchers. Research reported in these theses and dissertations mainly addresses the teaching and learning of specific mathematics concepts, from elementary grades up to university. Important attention is paid to the epistemology and history of the concepts and domains at stake.
The existence of Tunisian researchers specialized in the history of mathematics especially Arabic mathematics, such as Abdeljaouad, certainly contributes to nurture and instrument this attention. One specificity however, is the number of theses and research projects that concern higher education and the transition from secondary to tertiary mathematics education see for instance the theses by Chellougui on the use of quantifiers in university teaching Chellougui, , by Ghedamsi on the teaching of Analysis in the first university year Ghedamsi, , and by Najar on the secondary-tertiary transition in the area of functions Najar, In fact, these theses and more global collaboration between French and Tunisian researchers have substantially contributed to the development of research in the area of higher education in France and Francophone countries in the last decade.
This is also the case for logical perspectives in mathematics education, as shown by the thesis of Ben Kilani, Chellougui and Kouki Chellougui, ; Ben Kilani, ; Kouki, Tunisian researchers have also pushed new lines of research, such as those related to the teaching and learning of mathematics in multilinguistic contexts, poorly addressed by French didacticians. In that area, a pioneering work was the thesis of Ben Kilani who used logic to show the differences of functioning of the negation in the Arabic and French language, and to understand the difficulties induced by these differences in the transition between Arabic and French as language of instruction in grade 9.
This long term collaboration has enabled the emergence, progressive development and institutionalization of didactics of mathematics as a field of research and practice in Tunisia. The majority of Ph. In moreover, the two first habilitations for research supervision 35 have been delivered to Tunisian didacticians Ghedamsi, ; Kouki, , which is a promising step for this community.
The French-Tunisian collaboration has certainly played a role in the increasing regional and international visibility and recognition of Tunisian researchers in the didactics of mathematics observed in the last decade. International visibility and recognition expresses through contributions to Francophone international events in the field such as the Summer school of didactics of mathematics to which the Tunisian delegation is regularly the largest foreign delegation, the EMF and ADiMa conferences.
