Abstract: This contribution aims to communicate an experience about some observations of how high school teachers discussed mathematical notions by using the NetLogo Software. These subjects followed a modified Slime Molds model’s parameters and foster a discussion about notions, concepts and topics that intrinsically appear in the dynamics, and promote a way of mathematical thinking. Participants also achieved their prior mathematical knowledge and its evolution. These decentralized dynamics can be found in a wide range of phenomena, such as epidemic spread, public transport processes, ecological interactions, and economical interchanges.
