The Mathspeak project is a partnership between European educational practitioners and the creators of educational materials. Funded by the European Commission, this two-year project has been developing free learning materials that teachers can use to help non-native language students succeed at maths.
Cherryleaf has been the project managing and co-ordinating the project.
The Mathspeak products will enable students to:
- verbally express mathematical concepts appropriate to their age groups,
- put number problems into words, and
- handle mathematical terminology with confidence.
When the two-year project has been completed at the end of 2020, schools around the European Union will be able to download and use the free educational materials that have been developed.
In this episode from the Mathspeak Podcast, the project team at Colegiul tehnic loan C. Ştefănescu in Iasi, Romania, discuss using the Mathspeak pilot materials:
