According to the Decision of the Agency for EU Mobility Programs of the Republic of Croatia, the financing of the project InAMath – An interdisciplinary approach to mathematical education (Erasmus + Key Activity 2: Strategic Partnerships (KA201)) was approved. The project brought together distinguished educational institutions from the region, from Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia.
The project owner is the University of Rijeka (HR), and the University of Novi Sad, i.e. the Faculty of Sciences, is one of the partners in the project. In addition to the University of Novi Sad, the project partners are the Center of Technical Culture Rijeka (HR), Elementary School Nikola Tesla from Rijeka (HR), Elementary School of the Hero Janez Hribar (SLO), University of Primorska (SLO) and University of Mostar (BIH).
The aim of this project is to design educational content that will increase interdisciplinarity in the mathematics education from 1st to 4th grade of primary school and which will be available to all interested users. Project activities include the design and implementation of educational content with primary school students using interdisciplinary methods, the development of teaching materials that will be available to class teachers and subject teachers, as well as teacher education for the preparation and implementation of such activities. The task of the University of Novi Sad is to contribute to the mentioned project activities, and especially to make the connection between mathematics and chemistry and geography more attractive for primary school students.
The project started in September 2020 and will last for three years.
