    Abstract

    We are presenting a study about duality and its learning in linear algebra. We have elaborated a device of follow-up of knowledge and difficulties of students enrolled in first-year university mathematics or physics programs, concerning this theme. We are presenting the results of this device categorizing students’ difficulties. We present moreover a perspective on transition allowing us to interpret students’ difficulties in duality in terms of transition.
