Learning Objectives

The aim of the course is to "manipulate mathematics" through DGS, mathematical machines and 3D printing.

In particular, the course proposes the following objectives:

Knowledge and understanding: To know the fundamental aspects of the technologies used in teaching/learning mathematics.

Applying knowledge and understanding: Apply modeling skills in different contexts

Making judgments: Make judgments about the quality of the proposed solution and evaluate its effectiveness. Acquiring critical skills in the areas of mathematics.

Communication skills : Ability to communicate their mathematical knowledge.

Learning skills : Using the knowledge gained to acquire new knowledge.

Course Structure

The course will take place tuwice a week. An active participation of the students is required: the lessons will be frontal and participated.

Should teaching be carried out in mixed mode or remotely, it may be necessary to introduce changes with respect to previous statements, in line with the programme planned and outlined in the syllabus.

Learning assessment may also be carried out on line, should the conditions require it.

Detailed Course Content

Regularity in geometric configurations.

Mathematical machines.

3d printing
