Understanding geometry in a playful way - Learning by doing in mathematics

by Jimmy Serment and Thierry Dias
Who was not intimidated by solid geometry? Drawing three dimensional objects on paper with all their geometrical characteristics is often a challenge for students. However with simple materials from a DIY store (Do It Yourself store) and the instructions which you will find in this teaching unit, you will find that geometry becomes more intuitive. Jimmy Serment and Thierry Dias from Switzerland present their project about tactile mathematics for which they received the European Science Teacher Award during the Science on Stage festival 2015 in London.
