  • Special features regarding teaching
    A wide range of courses in various fields of specialisation is offered within the faculty and also through the Cluster of Excellence, the IWR and the various graduate schools. Particularly for the master students an integration into the excellent research is possible. Furthermore, the possibility of an in-depth interdisciplinary reference on application areas is offered.

  • Special features regarding the equipment
    The e-learning platform MaMpf, which was developed at the faculty, is a hypermedia system that links the teaching content within and between the various courses and thus supports students in their independent learning. Courses and learning materials from previous semesters remain permanently available, can be referenced by teachers and searched by students for individual terms. Furthermore, there is a modern computing infrastructure with computing clusters for use in the context of the thesis.
  • Special features regarding research activities
    Mathematics in Heidelberg is characterised by a strong connection between theory and practice and between the individual sub-areas. In Pure Mathematics, an inter-disciplinary research focus in Arithmetics and Geometry has been created. Applied Mathematics is characterised by its inter-disciplinary character; several groups are based in the Inter-Disciplinary Center for Scientific Computing. The Cluster of Excellence STRUCTURES bundles interdisciplinary research and the promotion of young researchers.
  • Other special features
    MaMpf, the Mathematical Media Platform, is a constantly growing project that bundles various e-learning offerings, e.g.: Hypervideos: Lecture, sample, and review videos with content outline and links to related materials; hypertexts: Lecture notes, exercise sheets and supplementary materials with content outline and links to related materials; quizzes: compiled from an extensive collection of multiple-choice questions and math problems, and guided proofs supported by tagging system, keyword networking and mind maps.
