The main goal of MERIA is to promote a positive attitude towards mathematics in upper secondary education and to show that mathematics is engaging, important and useful. In the project we try to achieve this goal by implementing an inquiry-based approach to mathematics education by using theories of Realistic Mathematics Education and the Theory of Didactic Situations. We develop scenarios for various mathematical topics in close cooperation with teachers from Croatia, Slovenia, Denmark and the Netherlands. The MERIA project activities address low and high achievers in mathematics with the ultimate aim of improving students' knowledge and attitudes towards mathematics. All resources are available through the MERIA website and disseminated by the MERIA newsletter.
