Handbook for pre-service and in-service teachers and students
The PUNTE Methodological Handbook presents the possibilities of introducing and applying the Poly-Universe toolkit in teacher training.
- In the first chapter, the reader gets acquainted with the teaching-learning strategies and theories that provide a solid foundation for the practical implementation of the Poly-Universe toolkit. From inquiry-based learning theory to the study of spatial abilities, from basic problem-solving theories to psychological principles related to the learning process, such as engagement and motivation, this chapter discusses various theoretical aspects.
- The second chapter shows how an art-oriented approach to symmetry, dimension, and transformation can add an incredible plus to purely geometric, math-based education. To understand this, this chapter takes the reader back to the beginnings of the concrete and constructive art trends of the 20th century.
- The third chapter provides an insight into the methodological foundations. Cooperative learning strategies, different manifestations of creativity, or holistic approaches all present outstanding possibilities for the methodologically sound use of the Poly-Universe.
- The fourth and fifth chapters provide a practical minded approach to the Poly-Universe kit. Here we get an answer to where, how and in what context we can and should use the tool in the teaching-learning process. Good practices extend beyond mathematics to other disciplines, further reinforcing the transdisciplinary nature of Poly-Universe-based teaching.
- Finally, in the sixth chapter we can read about the methodological and curricular aspects of the adaptation of the Poly-Universe tool to the electronic learning environment.
