Career education platform

What is DARTEF?

DARTEF is the career education platform that create strong links between school curricula and the world of work. The platform shows how various professionals use math and science for real-life problem solving.

How does it work?

The platform comprises video tutorials and software simulations. Video tutorials explain to students the real-life context and simulations allow them to get hands-on experience and apply their knowledge in a variety of real-life contexts. For example, students can use linear functions for creating a model of autonomous car, design a fountain show with simple fractions, control surgery robot via trigonometrical functions, grow plants with the help of polynomials, etc.

The video below is the example of giving authentic context to linear functions.

What is the impact of DARTEF system on learning?

We have performed two pilot tests in 2021 with a few hundreds of students and the results are very positive:

  • 75-90% of students reported satisfaction and increased interest in mathematics;
  • 80-90% of students love real-world problem solving in DARTEF;
  • Number of students interested in STEM career has almost tripled!
