Magica Mathematica by Franziska Wolf

By Franziska Wolf


ist eine Geschichte, welche die Mathematik in anderem Licht beleuchtet, als bisher gewohnt.

Als Mathematik- und Deutschlehrerin kennt die Autorin sprachlich begabte Kinder, die Bücher verschlingen und phantasievolle Geschichten schreiben. Diese „Leseratten“ haben aber oft Defizite im mathematischen Bereich. Sie verabscheuen es, einen Blick in ihr Mathebuch zu werfen, weil sie darin nur einen undurchdringlichen und sinnleeren Formelwald sehen.

Verknüpft guy diese „trockene“ Materie jedoch mit einer Geschichte, bekommt sie ein anderes Gesicht. Die Aufgaben löst ein Anderer, einer der Protagonisten in der Geschichte.
Genau das könnte den Lernenden veranlassen, es selbst zu tun, weil der Andere zeigt, dass sich komplexere Sachverhalte aus einfachen, zu verstehenden Gesetzmäßigkeiten zusammensetzen.
Fazit: Eine Geschichte, die zum Mathematiklernen ermutigt.

Die mathematischen Themen konzentrieren sich auf Flächenberechnungen von Dreiecken, Vierecken und dem Kreis.
Die Skizzen und Zeichnungen sind so eingebaut, dass Kinder sie verstehen.
Die Geschichte gibt dem Schüler die probability, das in der Schule Gelernte in einem anderen Zusammenhang neu zu erfahren und zu verstehen.
Sie schafft einen Überblick und dient als eine paintings „Formelsammlung“.


Siena 1925. Carla und Pedro verfolgen ein gemeinsames Ziel. Beide wünschen sich sehnlichst eine Ausbildung an der Baukunstschule. Dafür müssen sie eine Aufnahmeprüfung bestehen, bei der mehr als Rechnen verlangt wird: Ihre Aufgabe ist es, die Flächenformeln der Geometrie so einfach zu erklären, dass jeder versteht, warum die Formeln so sind, wie sie sind. Sie haben dafür genau zwölf Stunden Zeit. Die gebildete Carla kennt die mathematischen Formeln, durchschaut sie jedoch nicht. Pedro, der bisher nur die Grundschule besuchte, hinterfragt die Dinge und beleuchtet die komplizierten Vorgänge aus seinem einfachen Blickwinkel.

Rigorous Mathematical Thinking: Conceptual Formation in the by James T. Kinard

By James T. Kinard

This publication demonstrates how rigorous mathematical considering will be fostered during the improvement of scholars' cognitive instruments and operations. This technique appears relatively potent with socially deprived and culturally diverse scholars. The authors argue that kid's cognitive services can't be considered as following a normal maturational direction: they need to be actively built throughout the academic technique. The Rigorous Mathematical pondering (RMT) version relies on significant theoretical methods – Vygotsky's conception of mental instruments and Feuerstein's notion of mediated studying event. The e-book begins with basic cognitive instruments which are crucial for every type of challenge fixing after which strikes to mathematically particular cognitive instruments and techniques for using those instruments for mathematical conceptual formation. the applying of the RMT version in numerous city study rooms demonstrates how arithmetic schooling criteria could be reached even by means of the scholars with a heritage of academic failure who have been thought of hopeless underachievers.
