Project MUST in our local community Niedźwiedź, Poland

To present our project to our local community we sent an article to our local magazine “ZGODA” issued in the last quarter of 2014. We have  also placed the information about the project on our school webpage. This way all the schools in our region are familiar with MUST project.

A group of 17 European teachers and educators have gathered in Benidorm at the MUST project KICK OFF meeting. They came from schools of Slovenia, Romania and Poland coordinated by IES Mediterrània. The main aim of the meeting is to agree on project development and quality assurance plan for the ICT-based material which is going to be built using the Moodle platform.

Moodle Formulas question type

In our opinion, formulas question type offers to Maths and Science primary/secondary teachers everything they need to produce a high variety of Moodle quizzes. This question type was written by Hon Wai Lau. Later was upgraded to the new question engine introduced in Moodle 2.1 by Jean-Michel Védrine. At the time of this writing this version is compatible with Moodle 2.6, 2.7 and 2.8.

This question shows its full potential when used it in connection with JSXGraph. This connection  was developed by Peter Haverlson

If you fancy you could try it by yourself. Click this link http://mustpro.eu/moodle/aaimg/ajsx/GraphForMoodle2.html?graph=2*x+1 and change the value of the parameters in the line equation. What you change manually it is changed randomly by the formulas question engine creating a different question for every student. Wonderful, doesn’t it?

Jsxgraph

In developing MUST materials we rely on JSXGraph . It is a cross-browser library  from Bayreuth University which is implemented completely in JavaScript. JSXGraph supports multi-touch devices running iOS, Android, firefoxOS, Windows 8 (at least).
One of the main aims of MUST project is to use it to create hands-on animations with a “didactical” view. In this Physics example the student has to draw the line representing the velocity of a defined motion (for example, v=-3 m/s) then checks it.
