  • Project Overview

    In today’s knowledge-based society, where people are expected to update their knowledge even after completing school, this project is to examine whether young people who are working can improve their discipline, self-esteem, and ability to devise solutions to problems (non-cognitive abilities) as well as their mathematics and logical thinking (cognitive abilities) by acquiring the habit of learning mathematics. This project will examine the meaning of these abilities and the process of their formation.
    For this purpose, we will combine Nagoya University’s expertise in skill evaluation accumulated in Africa with teaching materials and instructional methods tailored to individual abilities.
