Leve de Wiskunde! 2018

9 April 2018

On 6 April 2018 the 16th edition of ‘Leve de Wiskunde!’ took place at Science Park 904.

 

About 60 teachers in mathematics and 50 high school students attended the Leve de Wiskunde! congress.

The congress was opened by Eric Opdam and lectures were given by Han Peters: ‘Een dronkemanswandeling op de schijf’, Guido Schäfer: ‘Is it smart to be strategic?’, Sam van Gool: ‘Alle wegen leiden naar automaten’ and Jan-Pieter Dorsman: ‘De ketting van Andrej Markov en haar toepassingen’.

Congress organisers Sonja Cox and Guus Regts developed ‘strategic games’ that were actively played by the teachers and students during the breaks.
