Abstract

We present below, through an example, the richness of the use of a method of clues to enter the history of Astronomy, tested with university students and teachers in training. The question presented as an example is the study of the work of Eratosthenes to measure the Earth's meridian. It shows how the course generates a chain of questions and new questions and problems arise as the students learn to look for answers and solutions.
