This is a series of materials designed for the functional teaching of mathematics through the solving of open-ended problems based in architecture and design. Assessment is naturally and functionally integrated in the methodology. The material encompasses elements from the storyline method and also incorporates the concepts of aesthetic learning processes and democratic values. It is, moreover, inspired by Howard Gardner’s theories about the powerful ways into education offered through such areas as narrative, mathematical/logical processes, hands-on methodology, aesthetics, existentialism and interpersonal relationships. Authors are Lisser Rye Ejersbo and Jette Kantsø. Publisher: www.forlagmallingbeck.dk Copenhagen 2002.
