Lessons in dialogue form

If you want to build a ship,

don't drum up people together to collect wood

and don't assign them tasks and work,

but rather teach them to long

for the endless immensity of the sea.


The concept of maths taught in dialogue form ( "Dialogischer Mathematikunterricht"

Learning from core ideas

The teachers should present the complete problem right from the beginning, but in a way that the students are not shocked. Instead they should be inspired to work on the problem themselves independently. Give them a core idea concerning the subject.

Travel diaries

In their diaries the students do not only write down their own ideas and approaches, but they also make entries in the form of personal comments on the subject and their work.


The following items may help to structure a typical travel diary:

date When did I make this entry?
subject What are we working on at the moment?
task What do I personally have to do?
aim Why do we do that?
traces How How can I approach the problem successfully?
looking back What is my momentary position?
echo Who can help me if I am lost?
