Description of the Experience
Geometry was always a problem for me. I liked the lessons that our teacher organized, but they were difficult. From 4th grade our teacher introduced regular polygons, we delivered presentations about Platonic and Archimedean solids. We had to count the number of apexes, edges and faces. In fifth grade we started working on tessellations. It was a nightmare. I did not understand and our teacher was demanding.
It was only in the 6th grade when I understood what tessellations were all about because you had to make your own tessellation using everything our teacher said. The works were great and I loved it. I understood what is the apex of tessellation, what properties regular polygons have - everything became clear and my teacher took me to a conference for children, where with my friend and I delivered a presentation to other children about tessellations. It was cool


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.
