Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to show how Felix Klein’s ideas concerning the teaching of mathematics influenced a major attempt to reform the teaching of secondary school mathematics in Brazil. We follow the story of this attempt from the late 1920s to the early 1940s, centering on the role Euclides Roxo had in these reforms. Roxo had a crucial influence on the establishment of the content of the mathematics programs for two educational reforms in 1931 and 1942. One can follow how Roxo retreated from his initial positions of 1931, which had adhered closely to Klein’s ideas, to a more conservative position in 1942.

Nous suivons l’histoire de ces réformes de la fin des années 1920 jusqu’au début des années 1940, et nous étudions le rôle joué par Euclides Roxo. Roxo, qui a exercé une grande influence sur les programmes de mathématique des réformes de 1931 et de 1942, et il est possible de voir comme il récule de ses positions initiales, qu’il avait adoptées de Klein, à une position plus conservative en 1942.
