A Math Lesson: Homes for sustainable cities and communities.

Sustainable development enables the needs of future generations to be met without consuming natural resources by establishing a balance between human and nature. Moreover, it is a concept that has social, ecological, economic, spatial and cultural dimensions. Our global goals for sustainable development include sustainable cities and communities, accessible and clean energy, wealthy families, clean environment, healthy and clean life, improving soil structure, reducing pollution, improving life on land and water, and reducing unemployment.

Since more than half of the world’s population now lives in cities, our urban areas are shrinking and the living standards of the society are gradually decreasing. Therefore, we need to significantly change the way we build and manage our urban spaces for sustainable cities and communities. One of the goals of the mathematics lesson is to find solutions to real-life problems. From here, students are given a STEM project scenario-based on project-based learning in mathematics lesson to solve the problem mentioned above.

As a preliminary preparation for the project, a STEM-related questionnaire is applied to them since they will participate in a STEM project for the first time.

The survey link and results are given below.
