Entretien avec Ricardo Fernández (Rencontres 2010)

Scénariste uruguayen, Ricardo Fernández Blanco vit à Madrid depuis de longues années. Il avait écrit une nouvelle qu’il a décidé de réécrire en scénario, sur lequel il a travaillé avec la cinéaste Ana Díez. Tout au long du film, "Paisito" (2009), il tente de revenir sur les douloureuses années 70 dans son pays d’origine, sans donner raison plus à un côté qu’à l’autre, ce qui lui vaut une acceptation mitigée en Uruguay, alors qu’ailleurs le film m

Entretien avec Paz Fábrega (Rencontres 2010)

Cinéaste costaricienne, elle présente son premier long métrage en compétition, qui met en scène une enfant et une jeune femme dans un décor de plage, en refusant le côté folklorique des couleurs vives des tropiques.
D’autre part, elle évoque la trajectoire à suivre dans son petit pays pour faire du cinéma, et pouvoir le montrer à un public qui s’y intéresse. L’encouragement que donne le fonds centre-américain est très modeste, mais il a la vertu d’exister.

Student's modelling with a lattice of conceptions in the domain of linear equations and inequations
We present a student's modelling process in algebra which consists of two phases. The first phase is a local diagnosis where a student's transformation of an expression A into an expression B is diagnosed with a sequence of rewriting rules. A library of correct and incorrect rules has been built for that purpose. The second phase uses a lattice of conceptions built for modelling students more globally. Conceptions are attributed to students according to a mechanism using the local diagnoses as i
