SUMMARY:

Our thesis consists of a qualitative documentary and bibliographic research that makes a historical and mathematical study of the Treaty of the Circumference (al-Risāla al-Muhītīyya) written by the Islamic scholar al-Kāshī in the year 1424 in Samarkanda in Uzbekistan. This treaty consists of the search for a better approximation for the relationship between the circumference of the circumference and its diameter, taking as a comparison the existing approximations until then. The result obtained by al-Kāshī for the relationship sought was a value with a precision of sixteen decimal places, this was obtained by an iterative method of rapid convergence. Our thesis aimed to highlight elements of the Treaty of Circumference that presented pedagogical
potential for use in the classroom. To achieve our objective, we rely on concepts from the Theory of Objectification (TO), developed by Luis Radford and on this author's conceptions about the articulation between the history of mathematics and mathematics teaching. We also used the methodology of Analysis of Historical Texts of Mathematics (ATHM) developed by Fumikazu Saito and collaborators. The base text for our studies was the Russian translation of the Treaty of the Circumference from which we created a working version in Portuguese. Through the historical and mathematical study, we made an exposition of the external characteristics of the work such as the existence or not of manuscripts and translations, historiographical and contextual aspects. We selected thirteen excerpts from the text and from their analysis we were able to discuss historical, epistemological, mathematical and axiological issues found in the text. One of the results obtained was the observation that the knowledge incorporated by the Treaty of the Circumference of al-Kāshī and its
context have pedagogical potentialities that can be used in the classroom aligned with both pedagogical issues that favor a broader training of teachers, as well as the teaching mathematics, exemplified through the elaboration of two activities according to the Theory of Objectification.
