Description of the initiative
Ubimath is a virtual box of exercises of Mathematics, Geometry, Sciences, etc.
Actually, beyond the exercises, the users can find many other interesting didactical resources. Moreover, all the available exercises include guided and commented solutions.
The really simple and essential graphic helps the materials seeking, even if it makes the website little appealing.
Starting from the homepage, the users are already inside the contents of the website: there is a long list of news in order to find the newest resources.
The links to the macro-section of the website are on the top page, while they are repeated with more details on their specific contents on the right side.
Beyond the exercises and the didactical resources, teachers and students can find useful training section on INVALSI and ECDL tests, materials on the usage of ICT and even a book (written by the same author of the website).
The English material and the reviews on other web resources are also noteworthy.
More Information
First impression of new users will be to be on a website collecting really many materials. Maybe, users will miss a guidance that welcomes them and leads them through the structure of the portal. This is why an initial disorientation can be expected.
However a bit of curiosity and some teacher’s good advice can push students towards the discovering of didactical reliable resources. Selecting a topic (for example “inequality”, this portal offers didactic textbook, solved exercises, online tests, LIM based materials and other external resources on the internet,
One last kind of contents that is worthy to mention are the proposals for non-formal didactic activities (like that one on the factorization
Teachers’ Opinion
This website has a traditional approach to the Mathematics in general and to its learning in particular.
The portal offers a wide set of exercises and downloadable files that can help the pupils.
This website has a high efficacy as far as the preparation to the Invalsi tests is concerned. It is also particularly useful for the pupils with learning difficulties thanks to the summary schemes and conceptual maps that summarise in a systemic way the topic and the formulas dealt with.
I think that the weakness of this portal is the way as it looks like. It is too much chromatically dull and little attractive for a potential user who need to be intrigued and not demotivated.
Improving the chromatic level and adding to the classical exercise some alternative hints for the discussion, this website could become a valid didactic tool.
Students’ Opinion
The first impression of this website has been unsatisfying because of its pages “look like whatever page of a book but loaded on the web”.
Seeking in-depth and surfing the portal, you can discover many topics well organised, easily explained and summarised with simple schemes and useful formularies. Especially the latters are very useful in order to solve the exercises.
The portal is easily accessible in general.
The exercises to practice with the Invalsi tests are very interesting and “could be a good gym in order to help me in reasoning”.
The weakness of this portal is that “it does not catch immediately the attention” because it looks like “dull and anonymous”, without something, as games or enigmas, that could “attract and intrigue”.
This is a website to be visited “when you miss an in class lesson or when you want to design summary schemes in view of a in class exam”.

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.
