Lukiolaisten matematiikan kerho (Galois club)

Tieteiden kuningatar*  kutsuu kaikkia lukiolaisia älyllisille seikkailuretkille valtakuntaansa matematiikan kerhossa, joka kantaa Évariste Galoisin** nimeä. Kerho kokoontuu lukukausien aikana - ellei toisin ilmoiteta - perjantaisin klo 14:45-16:00 Lyseon luokassa L26. Kerhoon ovat tervetulleita kaikki matematiikasta kiinnostuneet nuoret Lyseosta ja muista lukioista (ja yläkouluistakin) luokka-asteesta riippumatta. / The Queen of Sciences*  invites young students to join intellectual adventures over her empire in Lyseo math club named after Évariste Galois**. The club meets during school terms on Fridays at 14:45-16:00 in the Lyseo classroom 26. All young students who are interested in mathematics are wished welcome to join the Galois club.

Retired math teachers Juhani Fiskaali and Teuvo Laurinolli as well as the "math aunt" Alli Huovinen, a former lecturer in the university of Oulu, are serving as guides for the club. 

(Non-Finnish speakers are wished welcome in the club in which case English will be used as a medium.)

* This is how Carl Friedrich Gauss described the nature of mathematics.

** Évariste Galois (1811-1832), a Frenchman, was one of the most dramatic personalities in the history of mathematics. He died at the age of 20 after a duel in which he was fatally wounded. In the preceding night he wrote in his notebook an extensive report on the discoveries he had made about the solvability of algebraic equations. These deep results, now known as Galois theory, made a revolutionary impact on the development of mathematics.
