The organisation of the online materials
The collection of the educational impulses has been created as a means to complete
the textbook named Zahlenbuch (“counting book”). The musical impulses are
always based on concrete calculation situations in the corresponding Zahlenbuch.
However, most of the impulses can be adapted sensibly to other textbooks and, with a
little bit of imagination, even to other levels of education. Experience has so far
shown that teachers can easily adapt many ideas to the individual level they are
teaching and successfully integrate them.
T he topics and impulses originate from volume 1 of “Mathe macht Musik”.
The discussion forum and the idea database, however, also allow for the involvement of
other levels of education.
Every topic starts with an introductory page with which the subject is presented,
followed by the pages with practical suggestions, the so-called impulses.
Introductory pages to the topics
Introduction to working with the online materials
The different topics cover several contents of mathematical education. For the time
being, these topics are strongly oriented on the curriculum of the primary level.
However, in several topics it becomes evident that there are also many possibilities
for the following years of education.
Every topic has an introductory page and at least one impulse that can be tried
hands-on in class. Several pages (for example topic 8) offer further materials or
discussions are currently in progress.
You are more than welcome to contribute your ideas.
You can discuss ideas with us : on the idea database, you choose

You can bring up your own ideas for discussion : on the idea
