A Taste of Maths (ATOM)

The project targets 12-16 years old students. The working language is English. The duration of the project is six months. The goal of the project is to increase students’ motivation and interest for Mathematics, to stimulate their investigative spirit and curiosity by combining common mathematical contents of the curriculum with aspects of day-to-day life in different parts of Europe, using concrete objects as well as representations of mathematical concepts. It is also intended to facilitate mutual understanding through getting knowledge on the historical and cultural contexts partners live in.

Martisor

March 1st is an important date here because of the arrival of spring and the tradition that accompanies it: Martisor, the sping amulet we offer and wear, as a good-luck charm, as well as a sign of friendship, appreciation and affection.

We decided to share this tradition with our partners this year. We formed groups of 3 students, one student in each group made a drawing, the second picked an amulet and the third brought a card. It's not much, but it's heartfelt.

All our small letters are ready to leave for the partner schools tomorrow. We hope they bring you good luck and a sunny spring!
