Description of the Experience
I am a student of the fifth grade of primary school, and thanks to a very simple experiment that we performed on the math lesson I learned a very important thing, namely, independently came to this, that the sum of the measures of the angles of any quadrilateral is 360 degrees in a triangle 180 degrees. To do the exercise each student received different rectangles and triangles cut from cardboard. I cut their corners, and put cut-out angles in a way that they touch the vertices, and each time I received the same result. Corners of each quadrangle formed angle of 360 degrees, and each triangle 180 degrees. It was a nice play, and this type of classes make math easy and enjoyable.


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.
