“Unfortunately the Italian students in the mathematics are still not up to the level of the most advanced and innovative areas of Europe and the world: yet the discipline is definitively promoted, in every area of ​​the world, from a specific one to a foundational cognitive structure for the development and full realization of the individual potential of each citizen”. He was the one who supported it Ezio Menchi, vice president of the Uniser Pistoia Foundationwhich together with the Caript Foundation promoted the national conference “Research in practice: research in mathematics education for schools“, scheduled on in Pistoia next May 17th and 18th.

The highest peaks will converge in the Tuscan city Italian experts in mathematics education: 300, including university professors, researchers, teachers, doctoral students from all over Italy who deal with the teaching and learning of mathematics, will meet in plenary sessions at the Bolognini theater and workshops at the ‘Angelo Roncalli’ school.

The conference will delve into how mathematics is taught and what it can be like more attractive to young people thanks to new methodologies, languages, paths and more significant and motivating contents. Also of a laboratory nature.

“This is a training and professional development initiative to give a new face to the teaching of mathematics – added Menchi -, overcoming the historical perception of a arid, repetitive, hostile matterfor a good part of the students”.

“The initiative has also attracted enormous interest in this second edition – he explained Samuele Antonini, professor of mathematics and computer science at the University of Florenceas well as a member of the scientific committee of the initiative – so much so that we had to close registrations early, having reached the limit of 300 members, with attendance not only from all of Tuscany, but also from several other Italian regions, such as Friuli, Puglia, Calabria, Sicily and Sardinia”.
