This paper presents a proposal for the introduction of linear programming in high school considering teaching methods, the teacher and student profiles, and a non-flexibilization of the curriculum. This proposal came as a result of a Stricto Sensu research, which deals with simple problems that encourage high school students to understand Linear Programming by means of a contextualization of studied topics, as resolution of linear equations. The aim is to show to these students the range of real-world problems that can be solved using Linear Programming, with the application of methods to solve systems of linear equations and the support of mathematical softwares. The proposal presented here has not been applied in classrooms yet, but it is expected that students will be able to understand in a contextualized view where linear systems can be applied, the importance of mathematical modeling and the need of to use a mathematical software to solve real big data problems.
