Abstract : Dynamic geometry softwares renew the teaching of geometry: geometrical construction becomes dynamic and it is possible to - visualize - the generation of curves. Historically this aspect of the movement continuous or not is natural and was well known to 17th-century mathematicians. Thus, during the 17th-century, the mechanical or organic description of curves was re-evaluated by scholars like Descartes or Newton. In this article, we want to focus on a special class of curves: pedal curves. The definition of this kind of curves given, we will then briefly retrace their history between the 17th and the end of 19th-century. And finally, we present some activities which can be produced by a dynamic geometry software like geogebra.
