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.
Maths and Arts

Maths and Arts has been one of the project’s most interesting and at the same time most motivating actvities in our project so far, as anyone can see from its 20 blog posts to this day.
It started more like a game. On one hand, after finding some connections between Maths and poetry or tales, the teams agreed it could be fun to try to create Fibonacci poems. Bread, a common food as well as a cultural symbot, seemed a good topic that would allow us to learn more about each others’ culture and acknowledge our similarities. Once we started, it seemed our students enjoyed it so much they would not stop after just one poem, so soon we will have a whole e-book with our Fibonacci poems. It will be a nice and unexpected project outcome.
