01 October 2018 SMiLD Project

The SmiLD project has been funded by the European Commission through the Italian National Agency for the Erasmus+ Programme, focusing on the acquisition of skills and key competences with a specific focus on addressing underachievement in math. The project is based on the assumption that Learning Difficulties in Mathematics do not often occur with clarity and simplicity. They manifest themselves differently in different people, and are often left undiagnosed. The project aims at: Facilitating the identification of Learning Difficulties in Mathematics in secondary education students; Providing Math teachers with appropriate tools and sources to understand the Learning Difficulties in Mathematics; Enhancing the comprehension of Learning Difficulties in Mathematics at a transnational level.
