# Recreational Mathematics Colloquium II

O Recreational Mathematics Colloquium II foi acreditado como acção de formação

"Recreational Mathematics" is a problematic expression. For some people, like most professional mathematicians, Mathematics is lots of fun; but for others, like some students, Mathematics can be a nightmare.

Historically, we know that some mathematical research areas are deeply linked to puzzles and games — probability and chance games, graph theory and the Brigdes of Königsberg come to mind.

The University of Évora, the Ludus Association, and the Museum of Science of the University of Lisbon will organize the Recreational Mathematics Colloquium II.

The University of Évora will be our host April 27th-30th 2011.

Our Colloquium will be a Show and Tell of bright pearls of Mathematics, with varied levels of sophistication, entertaining many audiences. Its main goal is to foster mathematical appreciation, an important step if we are to see improvements in its practice.

We suggest Hotel D. Fernando to the participants. Please refer the Colloquium when booking for a special price.
