The VideoM@T Project - Engaging Students on Learning Tricky Topics in Mathematics Through Creative Skills

Sara Cruz, José Alberto Lencastre, Clara Coutinho

Abstract

This article presents the VideoM@t project, designed to enhance students' understanding of mathematical concepts through creative video editing. VideoM@t was founded on the JuxtaLearn process, an eight-stage pedagogical framework that uses an online platform to assist the students in planning, editing, and sharing knowledge about threshold concepts in a flipped classroom model. The project involved 52 students from 9th grade and three teachers of mathematics. Qualitative and quantitative data were collected to understand students' level of comprehension on tricky topics in mathematics. The results show that students were able to overcome their difficulties during the creative video editing process. The comparison between the first and the final quiz radar charts suggest that students have developed understandable knowledge on tricky topics in mathematics.
