Why math spaces
More than 22% of European students are low achievers in maths according to the PISA results (2012). One of the main causes is the lack of engagement of young people who have a very negative perception of mathematics.
Museums, centres and houses of mathematics were created all over Europe to promote a non-formal approach to mathematics, which has a proven effect on the mathematical skills of young people and their engagement with mathematics.
But spaces dedicated to this approach to maths are still few. This shortage is caused by unfamiliarity with the approach and the difficulty of finding appropriate resources and content.
A non-formal approach to mathematical education
on the creation of spaces dedicated to the non-formal approach to mathematics.
of open educational resources (tools, games, activities and stations) for math spaces.
Two math exhibitions
scientifically and pedagogically accurate, with construction plans and tutorials. One for ages 3-8 and one for ages 9-15.
The publications will be available in six languages (spanish, catalan, french, italian, german and english) and all materials will be free and published under an open license. Institutions are welcome to contact us to share the fruits of this project.
