Project meeting – London Feb 2019

The Mathspeak partners met yesterday in central London for the first project meeting. We covered a lot of topics. One of the feedback points from the initial testing was that the course material was also suited to lessons where mathematics was being taught in English. The schools also reported the students enjoyed using the materials.

A big thank you to Aston Rose for the use of their Haymarket boardroom and facilities.

Proiect de parteneriat scolar Erasmus+ (Romanian)

Proiectul Mathspeak este un parteneriat între practicienii din domeniul educației și creatorii de materiale educaționale.

Proiectul va reprezenta un sprijin major pentru elevii care doresc să progreseze prin sistemul academic. Deasemeni, proiectul va oferi profesorilor de limbi străine și de matematică, mijloacele de a aborda o zonă neglijată dar vitală și de influență, prin atragerea atenției asupra problemelor educaționale legate de limbajul matematic.

Pentru a-și atinge scopurile, acest proiect necesită o soluție multilingvă, prin experiența partenerilor multinaționali care lucrează în învățământul secundar și care vorbesc mai multe limbi europene.

Early samples from Unit 1 of Mathspeak

Work is underway to develop the Mathspeak training modules. The Mathspeak project is a partnership between European educational practitioners and the creators of educational materials. It aims to provide non-native language speaking students with the means by which they can do maths better. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the images from Unit 1:
