Mathematics
Workshops at the Scienteens LabOn Campus Belval, the Scienteens Lab offers three different workshops in mathematics: 1. Deal with randomness? Thanks to probability theory!This workshop gives the pupils an introduction into the theory of probability and its basic mathematical notions and concepts. Practical exercises that the pupils carry out by themselves help them to gain a clearer understanding of how to deal with probabilities. By means of specific examples, for instance The workshop covers among others the following concepts
This workshop is suited for pupils from 3^{e}
onwards.




2. Finding the shortest path? Thanks to graph theory!During this workshop, the pupils get an introduction to graph theory and learn how different theoretical concepts are used to model and solve problems that arise in daily life, for example in logistics and planning. The pupils can actively participate in the workshop and in various practical exercises, they have the opportunity to test by themselves the concepts addressed by the workshop. The workshop covers among others:
This workshop is suited for pupils from 4^{e} onwards.




3. Keep a secret? Thanks to Number Theory!This mathematics workshop allow students to learn how number theory is applied to secure communications. Through practical exercises such as decryption of a coded message with a cipher wheel, the student will discover how an encryption They will tackle different mathematical concepts:
If the teachers wish to prepare their classes before the workshop, corresponding materials that can be used to work with the students will be provided. (For more details see the Prerequisite tab) This workshop is suited for pupils from 3^{e}
onwards.




At the end of a workshop, each student receives a certificate attesting to his participation.
