Not everyone is an ace mathematician. But that doesn't mean that math has to be a closed book. People who enjoy working with numbers will not only do better at school, but will also be will equipped for private and professional challenges.
That is why Scout24 developed the "Math4Life" project in cooperation with the German arithmetic foundation, Stiftung Rechnen. It is aimed at enabling children and young people to enjoy working with numbers and creating awareness for the significance of mathematics at school as well as at work and in everyday life. Hence, Scout24 employees work as lecturers at secondary schools in Munich. That fits, especially as doing arithmetic is daily routine at Scout24: employees from controlling to marketing crunch numbers day in, day out.
The lecturers show pupils that mathematics can indeed have a very practical side: when does an online campaign start to pay off? How do you calculate the right server capacity? And how much of my last wage packet do I actually get to keep? These are just some of the questions on the Math4Life curriculum.
Scout24 currently cooperates with three schools in Munich. We will be pleased to add more schools to the programme. Interested schools are invited to get in touch with us.
