This work aims to present an introductory text on Elliptic Curves, with some applications in form of activities for using of High school teachers. Elliptic Curves are plane curves of degree 3 that can be equipped with an operation of Abelian group geometrically defined. We believe the presentation of the concept of elliptic curves, in a simplified and intuitive way, may be very enlightening for the formations of students in several sub-areas of mathematics.
