The present study aims to investigate the predicative knowledge of teachers about use of interdisciplinary planning of scientific projects in high school. Data collection was conducted in the context of an extension course at Universidade Federal do ABC. The teacher participants were referred by their area of training: Biology (BT), Physics (PT), Geography (GT) and Chemistry (CT). Was proposed a questionary with different tasks - an task that explored the predicative knowledge's form and another that explored the operatory form. We propose that the disciplinary integration degree as a concept-in-act essential in planning interdisciplinary activities. Admitting a task more operative than another, we suggest to be need translations's schemes to transform the predicative knowledge in an operative way of thinking. Not only the concept of interdisciplinarity is unclear to teachers before it lacks adequate translation schemes to form operative knowledge.
