Let's be artists in mathematics

Maths is all around us,so it is possible to work with children on several different issues related to mathematics and connect them with arts in an interdisciplinary way. Our intention is to make an innovative project, supported by a curricular interaction between preschools and primary schools. At the moment there is a large concern across Europe regarding the results obtained by children and especially on the success in mathematics, so we believe that an impulse must given to the teaching and learning of this subject. After a careful analysis of pedagogical methods used by each of the partners we want to understand children's needs and difficulties in mathematics, make some special activity and develop new teaching practices. The aim of the project is to engage all the partners in the development of this innovative project and to implement the use of ICT and of the different European languages, increasing the feeling of an European citizenship. Moreover we want to reinforce the interest for math and arts.
