Happy New Year!

This is a slideshow of the live nativity scene "Crib of Love" held in the Sassi of Matera on the 29th December. It is said to be the largest live crib in Italy. A real Guinness!
Best wishes!!!


Happy New Year

Already the best wishes for 2011 from snowy Amsterdam.

The tree almost looks like a fractal in the snow! It is situated in the park behind our school.



The Dancing Beans

In a pot, there are 75 white beans and 150 black beans. By the pot, there's a bag of black beans. A playful chef takes out the beans from the pot one by one like this: he randomly picks two beans- if at least one is black, he puts it in the black beans bag and the other one (regardless of its colour) back into the pot. If both beans he picked are white, he throws them away and puts a black bean from the bag into the pot.
Each time he does that, the pot holds fewer beans, and in the end only one bean is left in the pot. What is its colour?


Xmas Greetings from Elefsina

On the twelfth day of Xmas, my true love gave 2 me
Twelve perfect numbers,
Eleven loops a-leaping,
Ten tangents touching, 
Nine diameters,
Eight hypercubes,
Seven spirals spinning,
Six Cantor’s circles,
Four fractal sets,
three dragon curves,
two square roots and an Axiom of geometry!



Here is a short and (hopefully!) sweet riddle, since Christmas time is a time for sweets: if in a box there are 24 dark chocolates, 12 milk chocolates and 4 white chocolates, what is the probability I pick up a milk chocolate?
If I put my chocolate back into the box and take out another one, what is the probability I pick a milk chocolate again?

Logo Contest

Hi everyone,

It's time to vote!! Not all logos are in, but the voting can already begin for the Dutch, Romanian and Greek logos. There are also logos on the Twinspace from Italy and the Czech Republic. The logos of Spain will be ready after the weekend.

Ladies and Gentlemen, may we have your votes?

Here we are in Bucharest, voting for the logos!


Class Logo from Avila

Although we are still on holiday, I contacted the Art teacher. He could only send me the class logo. Let me explain you how they work. first they have a brainstorming to get ideas. then, they choose and work on it, making it part of the Art syllabus. The, they have individual samples. this is the one they agreed on. Students are still working on their individual ones.

This is everything we can present now.

Have a nice evening.



Logos from Amsterdam

Here are three of the logos from Amsterdam. The rest is on the Twinspace


Logos from Matera

Here is one of Matera students logos! We can find some more in the TwinSpace.


Logos from Bucharest

We worked on logos today and enjoyed it a lot. Here are just three of them; there are more in the TwinSpace...and maybe more to come.



Here is Elefsina, its archeological site, as photographed yesterday by the Pomegranate team. The puzzle is 2.300 years old and it belongs to Archimedes, the ancient mathematician, one of the three greatest ever. You can print and cut and assemble it. This is a simple way to solve the puzzle that has buffled people so much, it gave them a stomachache. That is probably why it is called "stomachion". Another explanation is that you mingle the parts, just as the stomach mingles food. Do you know the other two top mathematicians?


Welcome to Bucharest!

This is a presentation of our town. There are more glogs on the TwinSpace. The Romanian students worked in groups to create glogs about our city. We tried to use as many numbers as we could. We hope you enjoy it! Click on View full size!


AToM Logos

Here is our first AToM logo, made by the team in Elefsina, Greece. More to come!


The Pomegranate Team

Meet the Pomegranate Team in Elefsina, Greece. Chosen because it is a set with subsets and elements (the seeds), it also has a deep symbolism in our culture, which we will soon explain in Food for Thought.
Here are what our names mean in Greek:
  • Mother Earth
  • The manly one
  • The one who brings victory
  • The one who liberates
  • She who is born
  • The youthful one - new member!
  • God's gift
  • God is gracious
  • The one who is found
  • The Christian woman
  • The Luminous one -new member!
  • Ulysses
  • Two new members to join AToM!

The first bite

Hello, this is the first riddle, to welcome everyone on our blog:
You have three boxes, labeled "Apples", "Oranges" and "Apples and oranges". You know all the labels are misplaced and you have to replace them correctly, after sampling only one piece of fruit from one of the boxes.
How will you do that?
