The purpose of this research is to explore the possible advantages of mixing digital tools and pedagogical techniques in order to keep students engaged and help them to approach the study of mathematics effectively, improving both their satisfaction level and their results. In particular, this paper describes a learning activity called Advent Calendar. Proposed within a calculus course, it seeks to involve students in their learning process throughout a non conventional, gradual experience which recalls the logic of the special calendar used to count the days until Christmas.

Abstract

The purpose of this research is to explore the possible advantages of mixing digital tools and pedagogical techniques in order to keep students engaged and help them to approach the study of mathematics effectively, improving both their satisfaction level and their results. In particular, this paper describes a learning activity called Advent Calendar. Proposed within a calculus course, it seeks to involve students in their learning process throughout a non conventional, gradual experience which recalls the logic of the special calendar used to count the days until Christmas.
