The
34^{th}
Colloquium "Mathematics-Didactics" will take place in
February, 23rd of 2005 (starting at 10:30 a.m., lecture room H 19,
building NW II). The colloquium is organized for teachers for
mathematics in high schools, colleges of further education and
secondary modern schools in the
regions "Oberfranken" and the northern part of "Oberpfalz".

The four talks will deal on the Bavarian competition on mathematics
(StR A. Kliem from Würzburg), on the projekt
DigiO = Digital Oberstufe (Dr. M. Bauch
from the publishing house Klett-Verlag in Stuttgart), on
fractal polyhedra (Dr. C. Pöppe from the publishing house
Spektrum-Verlag in Heidelberg) and on paths, trees and tours
(Prof. Dr. P. Gritzmann from the Technical University
in Munich).

Day of the University

2004/11/07 - 2004/11/09:

The working group 'Dynamical Geometry' meets for the second time
and organizes a
workshop on the subject
'Dynamical Geometry' which takes part in the
BLK programm
'Sinus-Transfer'
The organizer of the meeting is the
Chair of
Mathematics and Didactics
(Prof. Dr. P. Baptist).

The main focus lies in possibilites in modern teaching which are
offered by dynamical mathematics. The basis herefor is the
software tool
GEONExT for dynamical mathematics.

2004/10/15:

The educational
meeting for teachers in secondary modern schools
which is part of the 6th Mathematical Week-end in Bayreuth
begins at 10:00 a.m. in the lecture room H 19 in the building
NW II.
