MaSCE³ Kick-Off Meeting in Viana do Castelo
From 31st of October till 2nd of November, the Kick-off Meeting of the Erasmus+ project Math Trails in School, Curriculum and Educational Environments of Europe (MaSCE³) took place. Being hosted by our Portuguese partners in Viana do Castelo, the participants first got to know each other, discussed about the aim and vision of the project, the first steps and milestones as well as the intellectual outputs.
The idea of the MaSCE³ project is to close the gap between “normal mathematics lesson” and Math Trails as a “special learning and teaching method”. To achieve that, we discussed many technical, conceptual and content-based ideas in order to make it easier for teachers to include Math Trails on a regular basis in their lessons.
Apart from the working phases, we also conducted the mandatory Math Trail in the beautiful city of Viana do Castelo and enjoyed traditional Portuguese food.
