Non-standard forms of teaching Mathematics and Phy.. (MATHPHYS-BRIDGE)
Non-standard forms of teaching Mathematics and Physics: experimental and modelling approach
Start date: Nov 30, 2013,
End date: Jan 30, 2015
Classic methods cannot facilitate the teaching of extremely high number of students and the supporting of talents at the same time; these activities require very different, non-standard teaching methods. These methods are a necessity for both partners. Thus, based on the final results of the IPA project Teaching Mathematics and Statistics in Sciences (HUSRB/0901/221/088), the main objectives of this project are the development and dissemination of Non-standard and Non-Traditional forms and methods of practice- and application-oriented teaching of mathematics and physics, exchange of knowledge and teaching experience, strengthening educational cooperation with other neighbouring countries, internationalisation of results by joining world-wide initiatives and the involvement of PhD students in the cooperation. The two universities embarked on the development and dissemination of non-standard teaching methods for maths and physics in a diverse range of fields such as life sciences, medicine, and high school maths. Their teaching methods encompass a combination of computer-aided, experimental methods and the development of manual skills, interactive and dynamic books, mobile classroom tools and individual study, as well as intensive forms of courses, to name just a few. To this end, the experts and educators from this cross-border math-Phys team have organised and will hold an International Intenside school in three languages for PhD students, high school teachers and students, a Physics Laboratory and Geogebra training, joint international university courses on Biomathematics, a computer-aided Physics laboratory, modelling with computer algebra and dynamic geometry software, and this list is far from exhaustive.Apart from organising scientific conferences, the researchers and scientist will also engage the general public in programmes such as Researchers Night, and the popular Meet the Prof events. The direct target groups of the project are university and high school teachers; high school, graduates and PhD students, as well as professionals, while the indirect target groups are the students taught by teachers from the main target group.
