      Abstract:

      This paper aims to access elements of cognitive reasoning   implicit in subjects related to mechanisms of organic reactions   based on the Conceptual Fields Theory of Gerard Vergnaud. We   proposed a situation of open character with a focus on organic   reactions. Undergraduate students and the teacher responsible for   the course of Organic Chemistry Basic were asked to orally   explain how to solve the task done. Textual Analysis was   performed with the aid of Discursive Transana software in three   dimensions: concepts involved, the structure of arguments and   gestural features. The data suggest keeping the elements   essential to cognitive learning of Organic Chemistry proposed by   Mullins (2008) with the idea of invariant-operative Gerard   Vergnaud. However, there is a need for association of these   elements in a coherent and organized in the cognitive structure   of the subject to which these elements acquire instrumental value   to associate themselves with justifications for solving tasks.
