vidumath is a EU funded Erasmus education project that is making open resources to answer this question. vidumath will show students and teachers how using creative video motivates and engages students and helps them continue their journey across the ocean of mathematics. The use of video, by students, is an exciting answer to solving the deep problems in current mathematics education, which sees too many low achiever’s and too many female students that have less than positive attitudes to mathematics.
vidumath addresses three groups:
• Students age 9 – 12
• Mathematics teachers
• The public
The project will create a series of examples of how students can make their own videos around some basic Maths themes. These will be piloted in schools in Europe. Then workshops, teacher training and case studies will be built around the successful examples.
