Description of the Experience
If at classes of math we are working with notebook and book, and the teacher tells us about the issues, I am not able to understand anything. That's why I go to extra-curricular classes. I had a very big problem with understanding what the area is, and what perimeter is and how to calculate it. The teacher showed me a very interesting experience. First, I used a long rope to construct various figures. I measured the length of each side, and then measured the rope which was composing these figures. I'll never forget what it is the perimeter. Understanding what area is was very similar. I received boxes of one unit square and checked how many boxes a given figure comprises. I believe that such exercises make the math easier.


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.
