Minister of National Education Mahmut Özer answered questions about mathematics and English summer schools, summer support and training courses, and science and art summer schools in science and art centers (BİLSEM) within the scope of the Ministry's "mathematics" and "English" mobilization.

Özer, mathematics and English summer schools for all levels in primary school, middle school and high school; He noted that the science and art summer schools in BİLSEMs will start as of July 4 at all levels, from the 2nd grade to the last year of high school.

Emphasizing that the registrations for mathematics and English summer schools and support and training courses have been completed and the registrations for BİLSEM summer schools continue, Özer said that with the application in mathematics summer schools, children and young people love mathematics and make this course the most important instrument in their hands to encourage analytical thinking, read data and make projections. stated their aim.

In this context, Özer stated that many studies have been carried out in areas such as mathematics workshops, material development and teacher training, and said that they aim to carry out the first applications of the studies in mathematics summer schools this summer.

Minister Özer gave the following information about mathematics summer schools:

“We are starting mathematics summer schools with 16 thousand 294 courses and 414 thousand 731 students across Turkey. Our students will receive training for 12 hours a week and 4 hours at the end of 48 weeks. In the summer school, fun activities and life-based learning processes were planned for students to create positive attitudes towards mathematics. Life-based activities such as research, travel and observation studies, model making and presentation were included.

Thus, we are starting our summer schools with an inquiry-oriented perspective that includes out-of-school learning environments, emphasizes interdisciplinary interaction, and allows students to experience their assumptions. The content prepared both deals with daily life problems in an interdisciplinary context and includes sustainable development goals and the history of mathematics. In this respect, our summer school program is the first to have a mathematics content covering different fields.
