By May 2024May 15th, 2024No Comments

Module 3 begins with an introduction to the theoretical foundations of reasoning and algorithms, emphasizing the significance of contexts and intercultural perspectives in mathematical reasoning. Participants then study specific examples, explore sources of culture-related contexts and enagage in problem solving tasks using different approaches of reasoning and algorithms.

This module contains lecture notes, a lecture presentation, and worksheets.

About IncluSMe
This module is based on the work within the Erasmus+ project ‘Intercultural learning in mathematics and science initial teacher education’ (IncluSMe). Core to IncluSMe, which ran from  2016-2019, was the design and implementation of open access teaching modules. The project brought together 11 teams of higher education institutions for initial teacher education from across Europe and was lead and coordinated by Prof. Dr. Katja Maaß, International Centre for STEM education, University of Education Freiburg.

A total of 13 modules were developed to be used in higher education settings. Ready to use lecture presentations and accompanying notes for lecturers as well as worksheets for trainee teachers are part of every module.
