Zaubermathe is kind of the counter-approach to the "Tower" which kids are building in school. brick on brick on their own shoulder
However: The TOWER remains THE symbol of choice: This time they can stand ON the TOWER and look down on the garden Maths.
Symbols like + - * : numbers etc are forbidden, since Maths is not calculating.
In fact: Maths is the exact opposite of Knowing, calculating. Maths is love for the unknown. love for the riddle. is is about finding keys to understand the world.
The German term "Zauber" has three different meanings: magic, wizard and charming.
Actually it would be more the latter. When we see maths as a whole it becomes beautyful, yes magic, but not as a trick. Maths stays Maths, and more often than not the magic lies in the beauty of simplicity. In the beauty of nature and fractal design: that the same simple structures appear everywhere and make the seemingly difficult simple.
That's Zaubermathe: It makes Maths easy by showing the whole picture. what first look owerwhelmingly difficult suddenly becomes easy.
Target groups: schools and children. Zaubermathe is a concept meant to help children understand. The goal however is to change how Maths is tought in school. So the logo should NOT look childish. Zaubermathe should be taken seriousely.
