About us

On this page the team behind MathCityMap introduces itself. The idea for MathCityMap was first presented in 2012 by Prof. Dr. Matthias Ludwig. Since then, the team and the project has grown steadily. A variety of European partners support and accompany the project didactically in France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Estonia and Slovakia.
