Thursday, Sept. 22nd, 3:30 to 6 p.m.

Topic: Within the frame of the conference, it is intended to deal with fields of mathematics at an easily understandable level, which are not included in the usual class-work. By this, we want to initiate interest for mathematics and to illustrate its connections to real life.

Target group: Students of upper secondary schools who share an interest in mathematics and teachers of mathematics.
