The theory of didactical situation was born from theorisation and scientific study of the conditions that allow us to overcome this paradox; if its recognition in the scientific community is undoubtable4, its dissemination and use in teacher training remains strongly limited, which Marchive (2008) points out in his recent study. Is this something to be regretted? Definitely yes, because teacher training seems to be an efficient tool that will enable teachers to avoid this impasse. It is crucial that teachers believe in student creativity, but this pedagogical belief leaves teachers often insufficiently prepared if they are to construct conditions for mathematical creation.
