Multiplication event of the “Poly-Universe in School Education” Erasmus+ project

6-7 June 2019, UNIVERSITY OF JYVÄSKYLÄ
 

Educational tools which make the thinking process more sensible and tangible, do not only contribute to the more enjoyable learning of a certain subject, but even subject frameworks themselves can be expanded. Passages open up, new connections are created between different fields of expertise, allowing a playful move towards the multidisciplinary and phenomenon-based forms of learning. The Poly-Universe kit, the invention by Hungarian visual artist János Saxon-Szász, is an excellent tool for all this.

The new educational methodology based on Poly-Universe was developed in the course of the Erasmus+ project “Poly-Universe in School Education” (2017-1-HU01-KA201-035938). More information about Poly-Universe and the Erasmus+ project is available here: www.poly-universe.com

Multidisciplinary Mathematics Learning with the Poly-Universe Visual Experience Toolkit 
Merja Sinnemäki, Leena Kuorikoski, Nóra Somlyódy and Kristóf Fenyvesi

Participants get an introduction to the Poly-Universe Mathematics Education Toolkit (http://poly-universe.com/) and to the final outcome of the Erasmus+ PUSE research: a broad collection of creative exercises covering K12 geometry, combinatorics and probability, sets and logic, graphs and algorithms, and more. The next generation of “Hungarian mathematics” is here: if you liked Varga-Neményi’s logical set, you will like this too. The complexity emerging from Poly-Universe’s simplicity makes it more than a game. Play, art, and creative problem-solving are all coming together in a new synergy for mathematics education.
