Salient feature

La Grange des Maths is the happy winner of the Jacqueline Ferrand prize, awarded by the Société Mathématique de France (SMF), for its suitcases "La Grange Vadrouille" and "La Grange d'École". The SMF is a learned society, founded in 1872, whose aim is the promotion of mathematics and research. This prize, awarded once every two years, rewards an innovative pedagogical operation in mathematics. For La Grange des Maths, it is a peer recognition of the quality of the work accomplished over the past 5 years.
"The jury appreciated the concrete approach to mathematics favoured by the quality teaching material developed by this action. It allows teachers to involve their students in motivating activities and projects. The jury also welcomes the very wide dissemination of this material and the growing number of participating schools".
