CATIA, Dyscalculia, design workshop.


In a rural context primary school where a pilot program of full-time schools was promoted and taking into account the component of the new curricular autonomy model 2017. A design and automation workshop was implemented using CATIA software, with the aim of demonstrating that primary students can overcome deficiencies in mathematical skills such as dyscalculia. The workshop was conducted with ten students between six and twelve years’ old who, due to their rural context, have little contact with technology. For the realization of this workshop, a survey was carried out for the parents and for the children where the full acceptance of the workshop was manifested. In the same way, the participation of the Technological University of Puebla (UTP) was carried out through mechatronic engineering, which was in charge of teaching the workshop, through the management according to the new educational model. The CATIA software visibly favored students' mathematical skills when designing a march, in addition to reducing school absenteeism and generating a product (wooden tractor) that has more significant benefits than the famous Japanese toy. The evaluation of the project was registered in rubrics in a span of three phases. The end of the whole process we concluded that, due to its low cost, it is possible to implement this workshop in all federal and state primaries regardless of their context and also that any child can operate the calculation using CATIA. With this last observation, we demonstrate that dyscalculia is a myth.
