Paths to Math

location_on Helsinki, Finland
Paths to Math is an electronic learning path for math that provides ready-to-use learning materials and a lesson plan for ages 11-16. Students' mathematical thinking skills improve and the attitudes towards math become more positive.
Maarit Rossi, Teacher, Founder and CEO
The attitudes of teachers and students towards math and problem solving have become positive. Math can be fun, but also relevant to everyday life, and not just learning things off by heart.

about the innovation

What is it all about?

Math helps people understand the surrounding world. It allows you to look at multiple phenomena and solve many everyday life problems.

Studying math is, at its best, student-centered and focused solving problems together in a group. Learning mathematical skills, such as problem-solving and communication skills, is as important as learning the new study material. Students should be encouraged to find different solutions to a problem and thereby develop their mathematical thinking.

Paths to Math is an e-learning path that provides a wide range of topics that enable students to apply their mathematical knowledge. Exercises use active and social learning and combine multiple subjects. Students both practise and apply what they have learned.

Paths to Math encourages students to work in groups. Working collaboratively helps students speak in mathematical terms, they can debate the results and look at a problem from different perspectives.
