Objectives: The new method of using mathematics communication activities for improving the teaching and learning of mathematics for pupils of age 9-18 will be presented and elaborated. Trainees will also have hands on experience by playing roles of pupils and roles of teachers within the training programme. Trainees will be trained how to use the materials of the course, which are the outcomes of the project Le-MATH.
