MathCityMap 2023 – at a glance!
As we close out 2023, we would like to take a short trip through the last few months and look back on the many great events and developments that MathCityMap has had in store for us:
- This year, the community has grown by 7,085 users and we are delighted to welcome all new members. This means that the MCM-Community now has over 25,000 users and has almost tripled in size in the last two years.
- Furthermore, almost 25,000 new tasks have been added – more than ever before. This brings us to a total of 74,226 tasks worldwide, of which around 17,000 have been published!
- We have also welcomed a new member to our team. Isabella Gogesch has been supporting us in the didactic support of the app since this year. She is also responsible for the content of the website and the social media pages (Instagram @mathcitymap.eu).
- Our new Erasmus+project MATRIX (Math Trails with an Inclusive Perspective on Students Experiences) has started and we are looking forward to the new collaboration and the goals we want to achieve together over the next few years. In the future, students will also be able to create their own tasks and the app will be made more inclusive.
- Of course, MCM was also present at international events. For example, we and our partners were able to present the system and its latest developments in Porto and Budapest. There were also numerous training courses and activities that brought MathCityMap closer to researchers, teachers and students.
- The partner school program launched as part of the MaSCE³-project has also been further expanded. There are now 39 official MathCityMap partner schools in a total of 9 countries that have successfully completed the application process and we are already looking forward to receiving many more applications from all over the world.
We are incredibly happy about the great developments of MathCityMap and the great cooperation with the partner schools and the community.
Thank you very much for your interest and enthusiasm to rediscover mathematics with us and to spread and share this knowledge. In this way, we can give many learners a different perspective on mathematics and change things step by step. None of this would be possible without our fantastic users, so thank you all very much!
We wish you and your families happy holidays, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2024. We look forward to discovering new and exciting challenges around the world with you and many new members in 2024.
