MATH+ Advent Calendar

The MATH+ Advent Calendar invites you to discover the beauty and power of Math beyond the subjects covered in school.

The calendar offers fascinating insights into recent application-oriented mathematical research and into the everyday professional life of mathematicians. The 24 challenging puzzles are aimed at curious high school students, university students, teachers, and everyone interested.


UPDATE: Still sorry for the delay

UPDATE (22 June, 2022): Unfortunately, we are still dealing with the aftermath of the staff shortages in winter and spring. However, we are working hard to complete the solution booklet.

Happy Holidays!

We hope you enjoyed the 24 challenges and wish you happy holidays! You can submit all tasks until 31 December, 11:59 pm (CET).

24th Challenge

Wow! How time flies… Tomorrow at 10 am (CET), the MATH+ Advent calendar will open its last window. We will supervise the forum from 10 am until 1 pm to answer your questions. For the 24th challenge there will be a time bonus of 72 hours.

Server issues solved 🙂

Thankfully, we were able to solve the server issues earlier than expected. Thus, we were able to publish challenge no. 12 almost in time. For challenges no. 10 and 11 there will each be a time bonus of 48 hours.

We introduce: Ganita!

In cooperation with Mathe im Leben, we produced the mathematical board game Ganita. Amongst other great prizes, you can win the game by playing the MATH+ Advent Calendar.
