Quotes from course participants

"The idea of theory connected to practical situations was really well thought out and I have learned a great deal about learning and teaching theories which I can draw on when I go back to my home University and continue my journey to become a teacher." 

August, student from Denmark

"This course gave me chances to solve mathematic problems in several ways. It was very beneficial to me, because I was able to think about many solving methods, and at the same time take the childrens perspective into account."
