Under the guidance of their teachers
and of a professional mathematician based at the Palais de la Découverte, one of the two
science museums in Paris, school children from two classes in a primary school of
ChillyMazarin (Essonne, France) will play at making toy models of mathematical puzzles.
These puzzles will later be proposed to the imagination of artists who will be asked to
turn them into attractive sculptures to be placed in the city park for public display and
enjoyment.
The whole operation has been conceived and will by supervised by Max Leguem, head of the

Brochure
for schools with ideas and suggestions concerning the WMY 2000
Many
teachers wish to participate in the WMY 2000. They want to bring the idea of the WMY 2000
to their own school or to the general public. But how can that be done? A small brochure
of the Fachhochschule Stuttgart Hochschule für Technik (University of applied sciences)
gives at least some answers to this question. It contains several ideas, how schools can
participate in the WMY2000.
