Description of the Experience
Didactic games are great teaching tool used in math classes. To make the course more attractive I applied the classic cards. I started the play by handing in 4 cards to every child. After disclosing the card each student had to add the numbers located on the back. The next task was to add numbers to each of the four cards arranged in two pairs, that is two-digit numbers. Then the children worked in pairs and created their variety of the game. For example, the winner is the one who composes the number providing the highest or lowest score. Another variation was the replacement of one card to another by lot or exchange with another group. Children developed the rules of games, the order of cards are dealt, determine the values for figures (queen, king, ace). We play cards very often to practice arithmetical skills instead of the classical questioning on counting in memory.

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.
