Virtual Math Club

About

Series of master-classes and networking across ORT schools in 2014-15. Participating countries: Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Czech Rep, Estonia, Italy, Lithuania, Mexico, Moldova, Russia and Ukraine

In 2008, World ORT implemented an international project aimed primarily at increasing students' interest in the study of mathematics. Virtual Math Club meetings are held in a format of video conference, which is attended by at pairs of countries. Each lesson has its own theme. One can be devoted to the development of specific strategies on the example of using matches, the other focused on solving mathematical problems with the involvement of checkerboards, etc. In the 2012/2013 academic year, thanks to a new program "TrueConf" technical capacity to participate in the project became available in all schools of the educational network of ORT.
