# For Educators

We have presented the result of our research in mathematical journals and talked at the international conferences for mathematicians.

## Present the Method of Research

After we received "Masatoshi Koshiba Science Educationn Award", we came to think it was time for us to make our method of researh public.

In Japan, as well as in the world, creativity is very needed. The world needs people who solve many kinds of difficult problems.

## Changing some parts of the problem.

Our method of research is to change some parts of the original problem. Although we are not special students, we had good achievements because of this method. In this website,we will show you the way to change some parts of problems effectively.

## Our Activities

Requested by a lot of teachers, we had workshops and lectures at the conference for teachers in Japan and abroad.

We had workshops for high schools students in Hyogo and Kyoto. We had taught students of the USA and Norwoy. We took part in RECSAM's workshop(an educational corporation of science and math in ASEAN) as assistants.

We have made our rescearch method through such activities.

## Research of Creativity

In 2016, Mr.Fukui who is the coach of our research group started to dp research on "creativity". He is analyzing our activity from the view point of researcher of education and making the method to discover new things.He became the researcher of Japan Society for the Promotion of Science.

## About Our Web Contents.

We will introduce the method that we made with the help of Mr.Fukui. By our method, you will be able to make new problems from original one by using changing some parts of the original problem.

## Mathematical Software

We recommend you to use some mathematical software. We are using "Mathematica". If you can have one license of Mathematica for 50000yen, and one license is enough for the researh of a group of 5 to 10 members. If you don't need the latest functions,you can use it for 5 years. The license for high school students is 50000 yen.

## Programming Lab

Although the speed of calculation is a little bit slow and it is without a palette of symbols, Wolfram Programming Lab is good free software by Wolfram Reseach that is the developper of Mathematica.

## Encouragement for Research at School

When you choose a good problem, you can find something new by using mathematics software, even if you don't understand the high school's math well.

Some of inportant things were found by students who can't solve standard problems in high school's textbooks. When they discover some thing new, students need help by teachers and mathematicians to prove it. Creativity is important not only for mathematics, but also for other fields. We also do activities in IT and statistics. Two students of our group were invited to the Apple's developper conference in U.S. as the first Japanese under 20 years old. The website of Japanese Ministry of International Affairs and Communications adapted design and interface made by us.
