App Update: We explain the new features!
After launching our new web portal three weeks ago, we now celebrate our new MathCityMap App Update! In the following we present the new features:
- Our onboarding introduces the system with just a few clicks: With the help of our explanations the start into the world of MathCityMap is now even easier (photo 1).
- The author area is now available: With the MathCityMap app, registered users can create tasks while on the go via smartphone or tablet. Here it is possible to either create a complete task analogous to the web portal or to prepare a short draft which can be edited later at any time (photos 2 to 6).
- The chat in the Digital Classroom was extended: Now it is also possible to send voice messages or pictures besides classic text messages. This allows teachers to support learners even better and more specifically via chat.
The MathCityMap idea:
With the MathCityMap app, students, teachers and individuals can rediscover their own environment from a mathematical perspective: Mathematical hiking trails, so-called maths trails, can be followed all over the world with the help of the MathCityMap App. After all, there are a multitude of mathematically interesting objects everywhere!
MathCityMap combines the editing of mathtrails with the possibilities of modern technologies such as GPS localization for orientation purposes, a support system through stepped hints and a feedback system. Mathtrails, once downloaded, can also be used in offline mode. The app is available in eleven different languages, including German, English, Spanish, Italian and French.
On our website you can become active yourself after a free registration and create your own tasks and mathtrails.
Webportal & App are developed by the working group MATIS 1 at the Institute for Didactics of Mathematics and Computer Science at the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main. Due to funding within the framework of the Erasmus+ projects MoMaTrE and MaSCE³ we can provide the app free of charge and free of advertising as well as conforming to data protection regulations.
