University Meets School

The following activities of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science address pupils who are interested in mathematics:

  • Mathematics Day:
    Once a year all pupils of Osnabrück and environs are invited to a Mathematics Day at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.
    The last Mathematics Day  took place on 19th June 2015.
    Lectures were held on several subjects and workshops were offered, in which everybody could work on his or her own problem. Moreover, information concerning the study of mathematics, the job prospectives for mathematicians and the teaching profession were provided. The event started at 9:30 a.m. and endet at 2 p.m.
    Here are some photographs of 2015's Mathematics Day.
  • Seminar Subject Mathematics:

    1st Prize of the Hans-Riegel Foundation of the University of Oldenburg in Mathematics
    Nils Berelsmann and Mathis Tobergte, both pupils at the Ursulaschule in Osnabrück, have won the 1st Prize of the Hans-Riegel Foundation of  the University of Oldenburg within their seminar subject mathematics and with their exposition on „Knot Theory – what are knots in mathematics and how do they differentiate?“. This exposition was supervised by Dr. Judith Plümer of the Institute of Mathematics of the Osnabrück University.  Here you can see the poster which was created by the two pupils for the awards show.
