Theatre in Mathematics

Welcome

The purpose of “TIM – Theatre in Mathematics” is to provide a new methodology to teach mathematics using theatre workshop and drama, in order to face the main obstacles in teaching and learning mathematics in Europe. TIM is a project founded by the Erasmus+ Programme: Strategic Partnership for School Education.

The project will develop the TIM Methodology by deepening and combining two existing approaches: “Mathemart – Playing with mathematics in the theatre workshop” and “Process Drama – change of roles, perspectives, and role aspects in teaching mathematics”.

 Mathemart is a new approach that consists in teaching mathematics through Social and Community Theatre (SCT) methodology of the University of Turin. Mathemart uses SCT to get students involved in the game of mathematics by means of theatrical games and activities: an overall approach that includes mind and body, inborn creativity and engagement. This theatrical setting conveys a creative, playful and trusting atmosphere, enabling students to freely explore without judging what they are doing, learning from mistakes in a sequence of trial and error.

Process Drama, developed by the HVL University of Bergen, aims at changing the teacher dominated pattern of communication by introducing and exploring roles and role aspects (the sceptic, the curious, the authority, the mediator) to create more student active learning processes, emphasizing the ability to change roles and perspectives in a learning process with arguments more than just answers.

The TIM Methodology will be built taking into account the 4 partner countries education systems in order to have a flexible and adaptable tool to each national and regional context. In the manual it will be described in his potential of adaptation to any context or level of literacy of the students within the range 8-14 years old
