Mathematical exercises in textbooks are often boring and unrelated to reality. With MathCityMap (MCM) and Asymptote, it is intended to motivate students to solve real exercises using mathematical modulation ideas. MCM is based on the idea of mathematical trails where you can debate, solve, but also formulate mathematical exercises. To solve the exercise it is necessary to interact with the place, or with an object, where the exercise is located. It is also necessary to use the idea of mathematical modeling since the real situation must be transformed into a mathematical model to which mathematics can be applied.
ASYMPTOTE aims to develop an effective, powerful, and user-friendly digital tool for teaching mathematics online. Both contribute to challenging students and teachers to develop meaningful learning. We will understand better with practical examples.
