Project details

Aims The aims of this project are mainly to encourage our pupils to look at math in a new way. To make them genuinely interested in math and to make them want to know more. Math is so much more than just doing arithmetic. Math is about exploring, investigating and make new revelations. We want to arouse the pupils’ creativity and curiosity. We also want the pupils to attain a greater self-esteem and more strategies when it comes to problem solving. It is important to mix different calculation to encourage the children to a more flexible thinking. This we will do in several different ways but most importantly through play. Play = investigate math. Playing allows children to get an easily accessible to the mathematics and makes it understandable for them, by laboratory work and investigative operations for instance. Children learn a lot by doing and experimenting. We want the pupils to discover that children in different countries can communicate through math and discover things together. Language plays a major role for the understanding of problem solving tasks, so it is important that the pupils will have access to the data both in their own language and in English so that they learn in a context. We also want to increase the skills of the pupils in English, which is the language that this project is using. The pupils need to investigate all their facts thoroughly before they can publish it.
