In this paper we present a description and analysis of an activity held in the Mathematics courses in Engineering at the Universidade de Caxias do Sul. The research was planned taking into account requirements for the training of engineers. Analysis of activity indicates that major powers can be developed through active and significative learning strategies. Students who agreed to participate in the activity "Applications of Mathematics in Engineering" show, with their work, opportunities to run, successfully, the path between the "do" and "understand." These skills are related to the steps of the model of active and significative learning, proposed, and are discussed in the analysis of the works presented.
