European Summer School for Visual Mathematics and Education
July 13 - 25, 2013.
Eszterházy Károly College, Eger, Hungary
in cooperation with University of Jyväskylä, Sint-Lucas School of Architecture, University of Applied Arts Vienna, ICT College
of Vocational Studies, University of Novi Sad, Belgrad Metropolitan University, Mathematical Institute of the Serbian Academy
In the frame of the TEMPUS IV. project, Visuality & Mathematics: Experiential Education of Mathematics through Visual Arts,
Sciences and Playful Activities, this year we organize a Summer University for teachers, undergraduate students, mathematichans,
artists and for all the inquiring people.
How to integrate pedagogical results of using art, science, and play-centered learning into mathematics teaching programs?
How to integrate experience-centered mathematics education into art teaching programs? How to expand the set of tools used
for develop a learner's perception, aesthetic sensibility together with increasing mathematical, logical, combinatorial, and
spatial abilities, structured thinking skills, motivate collaborative problem solving, interdisciplinary and inter- artistic
approaches? How to organize math-art events in your school?
The European Summer School for Visual Arts and Education offers a blend of lectures, seminars and workshops on visual mathematicsh
and development in the fields of experimental educatio. This course provides an outline of the theoretical background and
practice of experience-centered education of mathematics through arts, sciences and playful activities; and art education
through the experience-centered approach to mathematics.
The participants of this course will become familiar with the basic ideas and main activities of such organizations like the
Experience Workshop Math-Art Movement, a movement advocating experience-centered mathematics education, the Bridges Organization,
the world largest mathematics and arts community, the Symmetrion, a world association for Symmetry Studies, and ISIS-S, the
more scientific International Society for the Interdisciplinary Study of Symmetry.
This summer school is organized by the Károly Eszterházy University together with the University of Jyväskylä, Sint-Lucas
School of Architecture and University of Applied Arts Vienna, ICT College of Vocational Studies, University of Novi Sad, Belgrad
Metropolien University, Mathematical Institute of the Serbian Academy of Sciences. The staff members of the whole group are
experts in science and mathematics education with a focus on experimental education.
