Math trail Leiden

The Math trail Leiden has been developed as part of a final project of the Master specialisation Science Communication and Society of Leiden University. During the trail you will be able to see the city Highlights while getting various challenging mathematical questions. You will find out how much math can be hidden inside a city while learning about the history of it.

In the booklet you will find the directions and the mathematical questions. The trail starts and ends at the Museum Boerhaave. 'There is the standard trail, which will take about 1.5 to 2 hours, and a possible extension, which will last about 45 minutes extra.

We advise you to print the booklet on A5, as the protractor will be the in right size.

Teachers that want to do the trail with their students, can ask for the teachers manual here.
