Vidumath is a EU funded Erasmus education project that has made, and piloted, open resources to answer this question. vidumath shows students and teachers how using creative video motivates and engages students and helps them continue their journey across the ocean of mathematics. The use of video, by students, is an exciting answer to solving the deep problems in current mathematics education, which sees too many low achiever’s and too many female students that have less than positive attitudes to mathematics.
The project has created a series of examples for students age 9 to 12 of how students can make their own videos around some basic Maths themes. These have been piloted in schools in Europe. Now workshops, teacher training and case studies are being built around the successful examples.
