Trails along the Rhine & Main: Schwalbach
In the German town of Schwalbach, our student Daniel Tiedke has created the math trail “Einstein Trail”. The trail was created during our Mathtrail seminar at the Goethe University Frankfurt. All trails were tested by students on site and also passed our expert review. Recently we presented the trail “Großauheimer Altstadt” by Martina Kranz in our section “Tested Trails in the Rhine-Main Region”.
Information about the trail:

The trail is located oon the schoolyard of the school Albert-Einstein-Gymnasium and is therefore easily useable for all classes of the school. Within this trail, the students should discover well-known objects from a mathematical perspective.
