MATHINA – innovative digital mathematics for educators, young learners, and parents to connect non-formal and formal learning
Mathina is a two-year collaboration Erasmus+ project between five European organizations, to promote mathematical thinking by developing, implementing, and disseminating open educational tools adequate to the digital age.
The participants on this project are:
The project is funded by the Erasmus+ program of the European Commission.
The main MATHINA OBJECTIVE is to CONNECT NON-FORMAL AND FORMAL LEARNING of mathematics through innovative digital environment, encompassing quality non-formal educational materials on 4 topics: spatial visualisation, logic, cryptography and polyhedra/symmetry. Studies reaffirm that non-formal mathematics provide basis for learners to build more sophisticated math knowledge by experimenting the plurality of math situations, which make the links between mathematics of everyday life and those developed at school explicit. MATHINA learning process is participatory & experience-based, stimulates OPEN EDUCATION AND INNOVATIVE PRACTICES IN A DIGITAL ERA and PROMOTES THE ACQUISITION OF SKILLS AND COMPETENCES of educators and young learners.
Mathina will produce four outputs:
- A booklet on the Innovative Mathina Program, describing the fundamentals of the project.
- A repository for educators.
- A repository for young learners.
- A handbook for educators.
