Math does not have to be dry
Students from the Siegerland - Olpe - Wittgenstein region in Germany can experience this in the DigiMath4Edu project. The Department of Mathematics Didactics at the University of Siegen has launched the project. KIRCHHOFF Automotive is one of the companies supporting and promoting it.
3D printing tablets, VR and AR applications - these are the means by which mathematics can be taught in a vivid and interesting way. How does that work? That's what teaching assistants specially trained by the University of Siegen have been showing teachers at five schools in the Siegen-Wittgenstein and Olpe districts that have been participating in the DigiMath4Edu project since February 2021. In the difficult times marked by the Corona pandemic, this is an important boost for (digital) education.
Companies can participate in the project with career orientation days and workshops on topics such as CAS systems, programming/optimization, Smartboard & Co, AR and VR. KIRCHHOFF Automotive will offer workshops at Rivius Gymnasium in Attendorn in the first year of the project. Concrete planning for this will begin in May 2021.
The DigiMath4Edu project is being funded as part of the structural support programme Südwestfalen REGIONALE 2025.
