OVERVIEW

The course provides theoretical tools, developed within the research in mathematics education and cognitive sciences as well as neuroscience, to frame the teaching and learning processes of the discipline, with particular reference to the Inclusion. Furthermore, the processes of teaching and learning mathematics mediated by technology and the management of profiles with specific learning disabilities in mathematics will be treated.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to develop educational skills related to the discipline, with particular reference to the ability to design and implement inclusive educational activities, to conduct educational reflections a priori and a posteriori of the activities carried out, and to implement appropriate evaluation strategies.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims:

- to present theoretical tools to frame the teaching and learning processes of mathematics in a context of inclusiveness, also mediated by technologies;

- to discuss conceptual, epistemological, linguistic and didactic knots of mathematics education, also with reference to specific contents.

Teaching methods

Lectures where  take turns explanations by the teacher and discussions with the students. small group working sessions with collective debate are also planned 

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Theoretical tools to frame the teaching and learning processes of mathematics

Mathematics teaching and learning processes mediated by technologies

  • The mathematics laboratory as an educational environment characterized by social interaction and use of tools (with reference to UMI-CIIM documents).
  •     The instrumental genesis as a necessary process in the use of artifacts.
  •     The educational analysis of the approach to algebra  with the use of the AlNuSet dynamic algebra software.
  •     The evaluation of learning in a context of educational  laboratory .

 

Management of mathematics learning profiles of subjects with BES or DSA

  • Italian ministerial documents and diagnostic manuals
  • National and international studies on specific learning disorders in mathematics, with particular attention to secondary school
  • From research to practice: the use of physical or digital artifacts
  • The idea of inclusive education at national and international level.
