For Students and Teachers

There are many people working in Bonn Mathematics and at the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics who are firmly convinced that math is great fun. Within the framework of numerous activities, we convey this message to students. We intensively support talented children and adolescents in the Bonn Math Club and give them an authentic impression of the study of math. Intensive cooperation with schools and teachers in the region is an important concern for us.

Bonn Math Club

In the Bonn Math Club, talented students from elementary and high schools meet every Saturday afternoon on-site and virtually together with math students and mathematicians to "do math" together.

Bonn Math Tournament

Every year, around 80 schools compete against each other. The tournament requires not only mathematical skills but also team spirit. In parallel, the tournament takes place in Hannover, The Netherlands, and Belgium.

School Visits

Our dedicated team of students comes into your classroom and holds self-developed lessons - for all grades, starting from elementary school. You and your class are free to choose the topic from our varied offer.

Students' Week

How does studying math actually work? You can try it out for a few days - with us! Math lectures, exercises, workshops, information, study advice, nice people and lots of fun.

Mathematical Walks

Mathematics can be experienced and discovered - all around us! With this project we would like to encourage school classes to do mathematics outside the classroom.

Girls' Day

Every year in April, companies and universities open their doors to interested girls. With us, you get to know female mathematicians and find out how much fun math can be.

Math Olympiads

We actively participate in the annual international "macht mathe" competitions. In addition, we help organize the regional Math Olympiads and support the German team at the European Girls' Mathematical Olympiad.

Arithmeum Children's Program

Both science and art can fascinate children. The Arithmeum addresses children who are interested in this combination. On every 1st Saturday of the month there is a public children's program with varying topics.

Toeplitz Kolloquium

The lectures in the field of didactics and history of mathematics  are aimed at a broader audience consisting of teachers, researchers, mathematical educators, historians of mathematics, and students. 

FFF - Early Studies 

In Bonn it is possible for students to attend regular university courses parallel to their school lessons even before they graduate from high school. The HCM supports this project and early students in mathematics.

Dr. Hans Riegel-Fachpreise

The best "Facharbeiten" (theses) of students from Bonn and the Rhein-Sieg-Kreis are awarded every year. If you are interested in writing a mathematics thesis and need professional advice, please contact us.

Jugend forscht

The University of Bonn organizes the regional competition of "Jugend forscht". If you want to submit a young researcher's paper with a mathematical topic and need expert advice, please contact us.

Science Rallye

The science rally takes you to mathematical, scientific, agricultural and medical institutes, museums and facilities in Bonn-Poppelsdorf. Of course, mathematics is always involved!

Schnupper-Uni for Girls

You're not yet sure which subject you want to study? Then take part in the "Schnupper-Uni: Perspektive Math-Nat!". We present our subject in tailor-made workshops.
