Two new partner schools in Slovakia!
We are delighted to welcome two new Slovakian partner schools: Prince Pribina Primary School in Nitra and Spojená škola sv. Jozefa Primary School in Nové Mesto nad Váhom.
Prince Pribina Primary School has created 6 Math Trails with a total of 57 tasks. The trails have been downloaded over 60 times.
MathCityMap came to the school through Veronika Bočková, after which Katarína Máčiková introduced the Math Trails to the summer school. Dominika Takacova then launched a series of Christmas-themed trails starting on St. Nicholas Day. The tasks involved simple addition and subtraction problems in the number range up to 100. Over 60 second-graders took part in the trails.
The next trails are planned around Easter and towards the end of the school year. We are already very excited to see what great new tasks and trails there will be in the near future!
The Spojená škola sv. Jozefa elementary school also created two exciting trails (4710982 and 3411563), which were also completed by over 60 learners. In the first trail, the children received the tasks on paper and then entered the solutions online in the classroom. In the second trail, the solutions were entered directly into the smartphones on site. They found that good reading comprehension and good measurement accuracy are very important.
We are also very much looking forward to more exciting trails and tasks!
The packages with the official partner school badge and the MCM measuring instruments are already on their way to the schools and we are already looking forward to receiving more applications from all over the world.
All further information on the partner school program and the requirements for the application can be found in the article on the first MCM partner school as well as on the homepage of our MaSCE³ project.
