The project is about exchanging materials about students themselves, their school, city and country. The materials will be presented in the language agreed with the partner school, which will develop students’ language competences. Then they will use the received information to make mathematical problems in form of crosswords, rebuses, mathematical riddles, etc. This will let them practise their mind and logical thinking.
Maths is a good way to overcome language barriers through its unique language of signs and symbols, which are known all over the world.
Thanks to realizing this project there will be multimedia mathematical entertainment made by kids for kids.
