Thus, the ticket for the geographic map will be more easy (ALMEIDA, p.18, 2001) Many times the lack of preparation of the professors, or simply the lack of didactic material and maps aggravates this situation. What, however, he is being observed, it is that at least in the schools state of the state of So Paulo, the maps are in contact with the pupils through the notebook of the pupil, a species of emend that it is distributed the state schools. In the geography notebook the content is sufficiently including and the maps are gifts in all the volumes. That the presence of maps is not something recent in pertaining to school books, quite to the contrary, the maps are gifts also have many years in didactic books of geography and of history. The cartography also serves as to assist in it disciplines history. The great navigations, the great conquests of territories and the proper history of Brazil are more easily explained through maps. When, for example, the history professor will be to teach to its pupils the history of the discovery of Brazil, it when using itself of a map, goes to more easily obtain to illustrate how much the route of caravela if deviated from its course before arriving at Brazil.
We can notice that without the presence of a map the route made would be impossible to show to the pupils which for great finders as, for example: Peter lvares Cabral, Vasco of Gamma, Bartolomeu Days and Peter de Covilha. All histories of the discoveries would not pass of untied words, and the agreement of each one would be on account only of the imagination. The interdisciplinaridade of the cartography also reaches substances as the mathematics. The use of the mathematics if makes at the moment where the pupil makes the calculation of scales, what he is basic to have slight knowledge of distances.
