The project will produce results available in the 5 languages of the partnership (EN, FR, IT, GR, PL).
GOAL: Our goal is to raise interest and motivation towards mathematics among young learners through pedagogical tours, using architecture to underline the connections between sciences and everyday life.
This is the knowledge base that the partnership will create throughout the project’s duration. The intended result is the production of a methodology and resources for teachers and families.
During the project, we will create 3 pedagogical guides:
1. How our cities can help teach mathematics
This guide will present general topics such as interdisciplinary methods and gamification in mathematics by sharing good practices and already implemented examples.
2. Material creation guide
The document will explain step by step how we created the pedagogical tours. The idea is to give teachers and pupils the possibility to conceptualize and develop their pedagogical tours.
3. Pedagogical guide for math field tours
The guide will include all the necessary content for pedagogical tours.
Innovative learning tools
To meet our project’s goal, we would like to share a combination of practical learning materials. Those resources will help teachers and educators put the idea of teaching mathematics through architecture into practice. These tools are meant to increase pupils’ interest in STEM and to make pupils active participants in the learning process.
We aim to create the following materials:
1. Pedagogical tours around European cities and towns
Each tour will contain one or several mathematic subjects. It will be organized around chosen places relevant to European culture and shaped similarly to usual sightseeing excursions.
We will create 15 e-books containing stories based on selected places and mathematical tours around them.
3. Map of Europe
The map will pinpoint 30 locations (cities, towns and monuments) of architectural relevance. The places will be linked to mathematic introductory sheets.
All the learning tools will be tested and approved by teachers and students. Then, we will share the resources for free with anyone who wants to contribute to improving young people’s knowledge and skills in the fields of mathematics and STEM.
