Fibonacci  - Disseminating Inquiry-Based Science and Mathematics Education in Europe



About the Project

The major objective of the project

"Fibonacci - Disseminating Inquiry-Based Science and Mathematics Education in Europe"

is to promote and disseminate the inquiry-based approach in mathematics and science education. The existing institutions with significant experience in this type of education will support the establishment and strengthening of similar centres that in turn will assist the establishment of new such centres. By applying this procedure repeatedly, the number of such centres will grow similarly to hte Fibonacci sequence and hence the name of the project.

The centres will prepare future teachers and will qualify acting teachers to apply the inquiry-based approach in mathematics and science. The project started in January 2010 and will continue 38 months, until February 2013. It is funded by the European Union under the Seventh Framework Programme for research and technology development. The project is coordinated by the French programme La main à la pâte comprising Académie des sciences, Institut National de Recherche Pédagogique, École normale supérieure, and the latter organization is legally responsible for the project implementation. The part of the project concerning mathematics education is managed by the University of Bayreuth, Germany. The Consortium includes 25 organizations from 21 countries. Bulgaria is represented by the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme
