“The design and realization of the physical prototypes of some original didactic materials for teaching of writing-reading skills and mathematics in the firsts school years” – alternative didactic means destined to the children from the poor families with lack of communication, with the financial support of Interchurch Aid, Department of Romania (AIDROM) (1992/3)
Development and carrying out of auxiliary original educational materials
From the very beginning, our association used original educational materials (approved by the Ministry of Education), specially designed for children with communication problems, for improving their performances in writing and reading and in mathematics in the firsts school years.
Educational materials (design, prototype development and producing):
a multi-basic abacus , which explains how :
the numbers are built in,
operation are performed in binary system etc.
an arithmetic rule, with a double function:
to measure the size of a body
to perform the (+) and (-) operations using the sizes which we have found in the 1st stage
- an arithmetic house (to perform all the four arithmetical operations)
- a “domino” concerning the number parity
Auxiliary materials – according to the national curriculum to be used together with official handbooks (conception and editing):
