Bojos per les matemàtiques
The Mathematics course of the program ‘Bojos per la ciència’ of the Fundació Catalunya La Pedrera is a course developed jointly by the Federation of Entities for the Teaching of Mathematics in Catalonia (FEEMCAT) and the Societat Catalana de Matemàtiques (SCM) aimed at students of A levels in the field of science and / or technology with special interest and talent for mathematics. The basic objective of this course is to promote the scientific vocation of these young people and especially their enthusiasm for mathematics. The course has the support and collaboration of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computing Science of the UB, the Department of Mathematics of the UAB, the Faculty of Mathematics and Statistics of the UPC, Pompeu Fabra University and the CRM.
This course allows the students to know, in situ and in a personalized way, the centers that impart studies directly related to the subject.
‘Bojos per les matemàtiques’ is a one year course for students in the A levels Science and Technology modality with special interest and talent for mathematics. The basic objective of this project is to promote the scientific vocation of these young people and especially their enthusiasm for mathematics.
They interpret the presence of maths in current science and technology, and also in close situations of daily life.
They practice the intellectual challenge of abstract and creative mathematical thinking, which fascinates young people and adults, and who have possibly already met with other programs and competitions (Fem matemàtiques, Estalmat, Cangur…).
They work with high school and university math teachers, who will also be able to tutor them.
They have a clearer vision to decide if they want to pursue a professional career not only related to mathematics, but also science, engineering, economics or other studies in which maths play a relevant role.
