With this in mind the following question raises quite spontaneously: how is it possible to communicate Math, both theoretical and applied? Starting from this, a group of researchers (students, PhDs, Professors) has decided to establish a research group, with the aim of starting a new Matematita Centre(www.matematita.it), that is a Interuniversity research centre for the communication and the informal learning of Mathematics. Since 2005 and until now there are four Matematita branches in Italy: Milano Bicocca, Milano Statale, Trento and Pisa. In July 2015 the fifth was created at the University of Camerino. Our group is made up of students and PhDs that are trying to form themselves in this field collecting practical and theoretical experiences (like Scientific fairs, International Conferences, classes on Scientific Communication), but also professors that have already a great experiences (Sissa Masters on Science Communication,...) participate to this new Centre.

The aim of this workshop is pr

actical: we will analyze some of our past experiences related to some "digital" and applied every-day-life-Math (Speed dating, shortest paths for travels, knapsac problem, etc.). Finally we would like to try to build up a new network-event on thos themes together with the participants.

Ideas for a new Informal Math Labs

Alessandra Renieri  

According to the European Charter for Researchers "All researchers should ensure...that the results of their research are disseminated and exploited, e.g. communicated, transferred into other research settings or, if appropriate, commercialised...". Thus, it is part of the researchers'mission to raise the general public awareness of science, especially of Mathematics (the Science which is less popular among people).

With this in mind the following question raises quite spontaneously: how is it possible to communicate Math, both theoretical and applied? Starting from this, a group of researchers (students, PhDs, Professors) has decided to establish a research group, with the aim of starting a new Matematita Centre(www.matematita.it), that is a Interuniversity research centre for the communication and the informal learning of Mathematics. Since 2005 and until now there are four Matematita branches in Italy: Milano Bicocca, Milano Statale, Trento and Pisa. In July 2015 the fifth was created at the University of Camerino.
