Description of the Experience
The subject of mathematics that interested me most in all these years is the graphical interpretation of a function. Starting from the graph, I have learned to identify the domain, the image, the points of intersection with the axes, intervals of increase and decrease of positivity and negativity, any asymptotes, limits and points of discontinuity. In particular, I found it fascinating that one function can increase or decrease, a bit 'as we humans; I then discovered that also functions may have problems such as not having points where there are continuous. I have often imagined a function as the life line, which may have moments of "break" and positive and negative moments. The topic seemed very simple and easy to understand, thanks to our professor who made us exercise a lot of times both on the board and on the computer with the use of the program Geogebra.


Dissemination Seminar in Florence

31 October 2015 The seminar has been held in ITIS “A. Meucci” one of the schools involved within Goerudio project activities. Its main aim was to promote the results of the project toward a broad sample of stakeholders even overcrossing the number of people directly involved in the production of project outcomes. This purpose has been totally achieved especially thanks to the participation of students and teachers coming from different schools or from other classes instead of those ones directly involved within the project activities.
