Catania between myths, legends, polygons and polyhedra: MathCityMap wins Catania over!
November 15th, 2018 a teacher training course named “MathCityMap: using and creating tasks around the city” started. It is promoted by the Accademia dei Lincei and the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Catania. As a first activity, a group of school teachers tested the first trail created in Catania. The teachers got in touch with the potential of the MathCityMap app and lived the city of Catania with different eyes! In fact, they met some mathematical activities, located between Villa Bellini and Piazza Duomo. Here is what they said at the end of the meeting: “it was fun, engaging and interesting. It could be an excellent dissemination tool, and from an educational point of view it is an excellent opportunity to involve students by letting them doing mathematics in an interdisciplinary, contextualised, real and concrete educational context”
