Description

Learning Maths and Physics in Application in Nature - Use AR-Geogebra Modells to measure Hight, Volume or Distance

School children 7th-9th Grade work on text based excersises employing AR to apply mathematical thinkg and abstraction in nature with GPS in a parcour located in a park in Frankfurt, Germany.

The AR Mindpalace is based on the psychological "loci" (Latin for places) method, in which cognitive learning processes are linked to a physical location and thus local impressions of the learning content. Via GPS, the app's map is used to find "learning places" and solve questions and tasks at them. The beta version of the app is currently hosted by StudyCore via a web app in a browser (more info at https://mindpalace.studycore.de/ where a demo video is available).

Currently there is a learning route with AR objects in Frankfurt at Gr├╝neburgpark. Everyone can use this learning route via the mentioned website.

The DIPF and StudyCore have collaborated with the Adornoschule in Frankfurt to design a math, physics and biology trail in the park next to the school. Here, students go for a walk with their cell phones or tablets and find objects based on their GPS location, such as a tree. They scan the tree and a task opens in the app. This can be a mathematical question about a distance or volume to be calculated, which is represented with a GeoGebra model, or a question about photosynthesis, which is provided with a GIF and a quiz question. At the moment we are in the final stages of completing this MINT course and want to test it with two other schools in Frankfurt.
