About MaSDiV
Supporting mathematics and science teachers in addressing diversity and promoting fundamental values (MaSDiV) was a EU funded project that ran from 2017-2020. It aimed to support maths and science teachers in accommodating cultural, socioeconomic and performance related diversity in their classrooms.

Three modules have been developed and include outlines, PowerPoints and classroom materials. The PD course supports the promotion of science and mathematics in multicultural and diverse classrooms and is based on the well known STEM approach of Inquiry-based Learning (IBL).
