The Partnership, which is based on cultural interaction and exchange, aims to build up a common ground for friendship and tolerance with the help of great mathematicians of all ages: their contribution to mankind will be studied and emphasised. The historical and scientific data will enhance the performance in Maths and will strengthen the idea that culture is not divided into separate branches. Maths is a global language and offers our students the chance to study deeper, to learn better great Mathematicians of all ages and nationalities, to share their knowledge with other students, to improve their English, to communicate and cooperate with other European pupils and practice their ICT knowledge: all this through an interdisciplinary approach. Partners will work together in the workshops and via the Internet, will share their experiences and will teach each other. Pupils’ cooperation will be the most important part of the partnership as this will enable them to see that differences are not drawbacks but enriching opportunities.

As it is generally thought that Maths is the most difficult school subject, it is also the one that is feared most. We aim to change this situation and improve the relationship pupils have with this subject. While trying to do this, we will make our pupils love Maths through great mathematicians of all ages and nationalities. We think that those who are afraid of something are the ones who do not know or understand it properly so we will try to achieve our objectives through love and mutual understanding. The historical and scientific data will enhance the performance in Maths and will strengthen the idea that culture is not divided into separate branches. . Pupils’ cooperation will be the most important part of the partnership as this will enable them to see that differences are not drawbacks but enriching opportunities. hide

Pupils and teachers will be motivated and encouraged to share and hand out information and knowledge on the topic they have dealt with, as well as to ask and answer on specific Maths’ problems which address on great Mathematicians. At the beginning of the collaboration pupils and teachers will be encouraged to encouraged to start friendship: this will help to build an equallyshared cooperation. hide

In the meanwhile they will have the opportunity to actively practice English and improve their ability with ICT tools, like Internet and Power Point. They will learn how to work with a group so that they will be able to be more social, helpful and tolerant. This can promote success and in the final analysis we can contribute to educate new scientists of the future. hide
