# Teach mathematics through AI challenges

MathAData develops educational and digital resources for high school teachers.

## Our goals

Motivate and give meaning to mathematics

Move toward abstraction through manipulation and experimentation

Provide a set of digital and paper resources usable in class to teach the high school curriculum.

## Educational resources for teaching high school mathematics

Using AI challenges, MathAData co-develops educational and digital resources with teachers and the mathematics inspection.

These resources enable teaching mathematics through **manipulation and experimentation.**

The academic inspection collaborates with the MathAData team and teachers to build and validate these resources **in alignment with the curriculum.**

Half-day training co-designed by academies and support allows teachers to start **without prior knowledge of AI.**

We discovered the MathAData project through our inspector at the beginning of September 2023, and I decided to try the activities with my struggling class. The activities are varied and cover different parts of the curriculum with a concrete approach, as an introduction or in-depth study of concepts. Working on the computer engaged all the students. They were able to work at their own pace and progressed much further than I expected, gaining confidence. We also worked on paper with progressive exercise sheets.

MathAData is a valuable source for varied and motivating activities, aligning naturally with the goals of incorporating hands-on and differentiated instruction in our sequences.

## Teaching math with challenges

Download the scientific presentation### 1. Data challenge

- Concrete and motivating problems
- Easy for students to understand
- Quick translation into mathematical terms
- Open-ended problems: everyone can propose a solution

### 2. Mathematical modeling

Covers all high school mathematics

### 3. Manipulate, experiment

**Manipulate:** build mental models, visualize errors, trial and error

Example: choosing line parameters to separate two point clouds

**Experiment:** test ideas, establish mathematical reasoning to understand the objective

Example: find a distinctive feature by averaging an image area

### 4. Practice, calculate, prove

Paper exercises for practice and further mathematical abstraction
