CASE STUDIES

The Munch numbers

Topic: Set theory; natural, real, rational, irrational, and complex numbersArea: MathematicsAbstract: The agonized face in the painting has become one of the most iconic images of art, seen as symbolizing the anxiety of the human condition. Taking inspiration from the painting, the use of nonverbal communication such as facial expression is applied to explain the […]

The balance effect

Topic: Newton’s three laws of motionArea: ScienceAbstract: The Rebecca Horn’s “Yin and Yang Drawing the Landscape” mirrors the idea of balance, of forces in place that find the right combination. On this matter,the three laws of dynamics are about balance: Newton’s First Law of Motion (Law of Inertia);Newton’s Second Law of Motion (Law of Mass […]

Figurative science

Area: ScienceAbstract: Figurative scienceis a strategy that invites students to make meaning by describing a subject using figurative language. As the classic Shakespearean “Sonnet 18: Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?” the author employs metaphor to compare the lover’s beauty to an eternal summer, the student describes a physics law or specific subject […]

Miming data transmission

Topic: Understanding how the Internet of Things (IoT) worksArea: EngineeringAbstract: The so-called ‘’smart objects’’ at the heart of the Internet of Things are not only computers, smartphones, and tablets, but also the objects that surround students in their homes, at school, in cities…The students through mime, they will be able to understand how an easy […]

Matissian Geometry

Topic: Application of the basic formulas for calculating perimeters and areas of regular polygonal figuresArea: MathematicsAbstract: Inspired by the Matisse’s painting The Dance, the students will have to find their place in the space, giving shape to the given geometrical figures, using the formulas, and adapting the shape to the number of participants Learning objectives: Formulas […]

Human Computer

Topic: Understanding of the different parts of a computer’s hardware and of their specific role in the computation of the informationArea: Technology Abstract: Just as each part of a computer work together to elaborate the information, the students will organize their selves in separate blocks, each one representing one piece of hardware, working together to […]

How are we received and located?

Topic: Inclusion, Integration, Segregation, ExclusionAbstract:This learning proposal aims to explore 4 key concepts such as inclusion, integration, segregation and exclusion through art and role-playing, together with the use of technology, initially with a BYOD approach, and with the final creation of a digital or audiovisual product. It is designed to be implemented in the fourth year of […]

Interpretation of the function of the cup of Pythagoras

Topic: Atmospheric pressureArea: Science Abstract : Atmospheric pressure was taught in the classroom and then the students went to the clay workshop to make the Pythagorean cup. This was followed by a teaching in the laboratory room and a demonstration in a transparent mug of how it works. Learning objectives: Atmospheric pressure – Hydrostatic pressure […]

Geometric flat shapes

Topic:  Geometric flat shapesArea: Mathematics Abstract: On the occasion of a well-known painting by Kandinsky, his biography and works are presented. Of particular importance is the interpretation of colors and shapes, with the corresponding sounds they have. Learning objectives:Geometric shapes – Construction •                     Triangles•                     Squares•                     Rectangle•                     Rhombuses•                     Circles•                     Semicircles Teachers’ profile: (team transversality) Mathematician Advisable […]

Roots of the geometry

Topic: Construction of a right angle with a cordArea: MathematicsAbstract: Behind every human discovery, there was always the need to solve a problem he had to confront. That is why he had to deal with the measurement of the land, the correct construction of boundaries in the estates, the vertical construction of the yards and […]
