Mathematics Laboratory

The Maths lab is located in a circa 45 m2 room where  are several teaching tools for math many of them designed, created and tested by Ughi of the Department of Mathematics at the University of Perugia.
To the question: What is, or what can be, a laboratory of Mathematics? The quite common answer is a "computer lab," but it is of course, extremely simplistic.

The Lab of Mathematics offers an educational approach that involves the use of all kinds of materials, the design and execution of "physical" objects to investigate the abstract mathematical entities, including, among them, the tool "computer".
The laboratory also provides activities aimed at children with dyslexia and those suffering from Down syndrome.


The laboratory is located in a 45 m2 area.
