Description of the Experience
Teaching Maths wasn't always my favourite thing to do, but since I've got no choice I tried to make it as simple as any child could understand it. For instance I use a lot of images, cards, toys, food, children to show how much a number can increase if I add another one. sometimes I use songs and rhymes so children can keep in mind what I'n tring to say.

I also think mathematics becomes more attractive if we can play with it. Mathematical games and plays help the student to develop combination thinking, stimulate intellectual activity and the will to self-overcoming difficulties. They train logical thinking, abstracting and classifying. Students eagerly participate in this type of classes. After such a type of classes students can individually create mathematical games for the next classes to make it more attractive.


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.
