Instructor: Dr. Réka SZÁSZ
Course objectivesThe aim of the course is to observe Mathematics classes within the Hungarian Education System. Visits will be made to four different institutions, and 8-10 lessons will be observed in each. Classes of different teachers and different grades will be selected, but also consecutive classes in order to observe long-term planning. Classroom visits will be accompanied by class discussions, which will prepare for future visits and analyse past ones.
- Mathematics camps by Lajos Pósa for talented students (the teaching method of the camps is discussed in detail in the BSM course Discovery Methods)
- Fazekas Mihály Primary and Secondary School (Fazekas Mihály F.városi Gyakorló Általános Iskola és Gimnázium) with the strongest Math specialty class in Hungary
- Alternative Secondary school of Economics (Alternatív Közgazdasági Gimnázium)
- Eötvös József Secondary School (Eötvös József Gimnázium, Budapest) (in Hungarian only)
