Description of the Experience
The study of irrational inequalities has always been a reminder to students, because it is unfamiliar and sometimes difficult. The experience for the students noted that at first it seems that the pattern of resolution is sufficient, but when it is more complicated then the schema gained is lost in unrealistic, ineffective and unsuitable solutions that get results extremely negative.
One strategy that has been successful in part but not all of the students has been to tackle inequality suffered a "not easy" to see the solution method.
This approach, however, tends to discourage students, especially those who have less attention span, but on the other hand does not recall the saying, "you make exercises easy at school and at home (or in the test) we have them more difficult."

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.
