Outreach Activities

Mathematics is a living subject – as our outreach activities show: In the school portal, you will find many offers for students and teachers. The ix-quadrat hands-on mathematics exhibition is aimed at young and old and shows that mathematics can be "grasped". The news from the Department of Mathematics will show you where mathematics is alive.

School Portal

Students, teachers, parents and interested individuals can find information and opportunities to get to know mathematics as an interesting subject and field of study here.

Math Exhibition ix-quadrat

The ix-quadrat is a hands-on exhibition which aims to awaken interest in mathematics in general and makes mathematics literally tangible.
