Finnish and Maths in Italy

In a Primary school in Italy, and more precisely in Lucca, Tuscany, two classes are testing a method to teach maths, which is based on Finnish books, with the aim to stimulate the kids’ knowledge and skills. This experience allowed the pupils to get closer to the Finnish language, to learn some words, but also to increase their memory and to improve their skills in English. For Italian speakers – but also for the Finnish colleagues  – there is a video on the Italian newspaper La Repubblica: http://video.repubblica.it/cronaca/viva-la-matikka-scuola-primaria-a-lucca/188850/187768?ref=HRESS-1
