Talks and Debate: 13 April, 15:00, Sala Pedro Nunes
The way the definition of limit is presented to high school students has recently
changed in Portugal. On the 13th of April, at the Department of Mathematics of the
University of Coimbra, António Bivar and Augusto Franco de Oliveira will talk
and discuss about the advantages and flaws of this new approach.
This event is
organized by the Portuguese Mathematical Society (Central Portugal section):
 Joana Nunes da Costa, Daniel Marques Pinto,
Margarida Camarinha and
Maria João Ferreira (CMUC).
 Maria Francisca Matos Cabo (Esc. Sec. Avelar Brotero).
It does not
require any kind of registration.
The Mathematics Group of the UC Students' Union organizes the 2nd edition of the (in) ForMAT, to be held on the 18th and 19th of April in the Department of Mathematics. This project is directed not only to undergraduate students but also to those of the different MSc courses at the department. This year, the event has the support of CMUC and Académica Start UC.

27 July, 2018, Coimbra
The Summer University 2018, promoted by the University of Coimbra (UC),
will take place from the 2nd to 7th of July. This is an event for high school students.
Throughout the event, several high school students will have the opportunity to participate in scientific, pedagogic and cultural activities that will show them
what is best done in the UC and in the town.
The Department of Mathematics and CMUC collaborate with a set of activities on Mathematics, as well as in some
transversal activities.
