CAMPUS MATEMATICA 2019
Non-Euclidean Geometry Workshop
Since 2019, the Department of Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics (DMIF) has been organising, for students in last three years of upper secondary school, ‘Campus Matematica’, a series of activities and lessons giving them the opportunity to try out the training and teaching and relational methods of the academic world in the area of mathematics in order to promote mindful choices of future university career.
The activities carried out at Campus Matematica enable students to gain hours of work experience. Registration for Campus Matematica is carried out directly through the school of origin.
Technical and practical disciplinary skills
By participating in the activities envisaged for the Non-Euclidean Geometry Workshop, students will become more aware of the technical meaning of what a construction is in mathematics and the role that geometry plays in our understanding of the physical world. This greater awareness will be acquired through practical use of modern computer programmes, such as GeoGebra, designed for geometric constructions.
Social, organisational and operational skills
During the work experience period, students will also become teachers. Indeed, part of the project is to attempt, including through group work, to solve geometric problems which must subsequently be presented clearly and accessibly to the other participants. In line with the underlying strategy of the Non-Euclidean Geometry Workshop, the young people will put their social and organisational skills into practice, potentially building and strengthening them.
