Description of the Experience
I am a student of second grade of lower secondary school, and I am pleased to participate in math classes where something happens and we draw to conclusions on our own. Definitely it is easier to solve tasks later. In order to bring us closer to the volume of prisms and pyramids our teacher prepared a series of experiments. I got the models of different solids and was pouring various substances into them: in the type of salt, buckwheat, etc. and examined to which solid I can pour the same amount of substance. I learned what affects the capacity of the dish, which must have common characteristics, and how much of the substance will fit in prism, and how much in the pyramid, which have the same base and height. After doing all these experiences I could easily create an overall pattern that will allow me to calculate the capacity of each dish in the shape of a pyramid and a prism. After such lessons the knowledge will remain in my brain forever.


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.
