MoMaTrE – Mobile Math Trails In Europe

After one year of preparation we managed it: MathCityMap is the heart of the Strategic Partnership MoMaTrE. MoMaTrE is an acronym for Mobile Math Trails in Europe. The working group MATIS I led the application for this Erasmus + project. Currently, seven institutions from five countries are participating:

  •  Goethe University, Frankfurt
  • Univerzita Konstantina Filozofa, Nitra, Slovakia
  • Université Claude Bernard, Lyon, France
  • Instituto de Engenharia de Sistemas e Computadores, Investigação e Desenvolvimento, Lisbon, Portugal
  • Instituto Superior de Engenharia, Porto, Portugal
  • Autentek GmbH, Berlin (software company)
  • Federación Española de Sociedades de Profesores de Matemáticas, Santander, Spain  

Within the next three years, the project has the following aims

  • Spread of mobile Math Trails across Europe
  • Further development of MathCityMap (including Gamification, mobile authoring tools, new task formats, educational Math Trail features)
  • Database for generic Tasks
  • Development and implementation of (international) training modules (shortterm curriculum)
  • Development and implementation of accredited seminars on outdoor mathematics (longterm curriculum)
  • Explore the use of mobile math trails and present the results at congresses and publications

Apart from the contentual reasons, the many supporting letters of our associate partners were responsible for the award. For example, we were able to convince the MNU, the Media Office of the DMV, Mathe im Leben, the DZLM, and the Stiftung Rechnen. From France are supported by the IREM, from Spain the Royal Spanish Society of Mathematics, from Portugal the Mathematicial Society as well as the Mathematics Teaching Association, and from Slovakia the Association of Slovak mathematicians and physicists.

One response to “MoMaTrE – Mobile Math Trails In Europe”

  1. Doing mathematical solution manually , whatever it is, is good thing because the knowledge will be kept refreshing but sometimes when you are doubtful with your answer, it will be good if you can have some reference or guidance to make sure your solution is correct. So calculator would be handy in this case. Plus, if you are on doing it on a very short time, calculator would really help you save time.
