The teaching of mathematics is considered one of the key competencies of the 21st century. However, many students find them boring and difficult to learn. This gave rise to the “Innovative maths teaching” project, which aims to improve children’s mathematical skills by increasing students’ interest and curiosity.

Mit School participates together with five other schools of the European Union in this project that belongs to the European Program of Education, Training, Youth and Sport 2014-2020 Erasmus+ and has just been approved. It is aimed at students between the ages of 11 and 14.

Among the specific objectives of the programme are:

  • Directly supporting 100 students and 32 teachers to develop innovative interdisciplinary materials during 4 international exchanges
  • Developing mathematical competence for the future of 80% of children in five EU countries
  • Stimulate curiosity and creativity among students in 5 EU schools by connecting mathematics with real life
  • Increase interpersonal and intercultural communication competence among 80% of participating students from 5 European Schools

To improve the assessment and learning of mathematics using research-based learning four pupil exchanges (Romania-Ticleni, Italy-Chieti, Spain-Malaga and Macedonıa- Skopje) and a transnational meeting in Turkey (Istanbul) are planned under this innovative educational project. The total number of participants will be 100, plus 32 teachers.

We look forward to the start of this motivating project!
