Abstract: The curriculum reform, initiated in Niger in 2019 in primary education, calls for new teaching practices for some teachers not trained in mathematics teaching. Our study aims at exploring how mathematics teachers use their knowledge in their practices. Analysis of interviews, conducted with 30 teachers, shows that teachers follow the curriculum requirements. Teachers trained to teach mathematics rely in particular on knowledge acquired during initial training, while others rely on their teaching experience. Teachers’ perceptions of the effectiveness of the training received have a bearing on teaching practices.
