How much time will I need to invest in this course?
It is hard to give a general answer, but based on teacher feedback we expect that you will need to invest at least 6 hours per week.
Who should follow the Quantum Quest? How hard is it?
Our programme is aimed at students in the last or second-to-last year of high school (16-18 years old, in the Netherlands: 5-6 VWO) who follow the more advanced math electives. The Quantum Quest can be very challenging! Participating as a group or school class can make things easier (but is by no means required).
We participate as a class or group. How should we sign up?
All students should sign up individually (also your teachers). You are welcome to work together, and submit your homework (just once) as a group, ideally consisting of 2-5 people. A few weeks before the Quest starts, you will receive instructions on how to make your group known.
What is my role as a teacher?
We will support your students, grade their homework, answer their questions, etc. We do not assign grades to students, only a binary pass/fail (in the form of a certificate). You only have to ask your students to register. Please give them the opportunity to attend (at least) one Q&A session per week.
In September, we organize an information session for (mainly Dutch) teachers. Contact Kees Temme for more information.
Teachers are warmly invited to follow along, plan activities with your class, etc. To support you, we will offer a private chat room for teachers. Therefore, make sure you register yourself as well!
Can I follow this course from anywhere in the world?
Yes, you can participate from anywhere in the world, all you need is a stable internet connection! Do note that our lectures and discussion sessions are held in the Central European Time (CET) time zone (mostly in the afternoon).
I have a question that is not on this list!
Please contact Koen Groenland with your question.
