Það sem verður gert

If you are looking for a truly unique way to learn about the history of Amsterdam, this tour will be a great addition to your visit to this beautiful city. We will walk around the city center exploring the many mathematical treasures that are hidden among the streets and canals of Amsterdam. From art sculptures to timelines to strange number systems, you will see and learn many surprising things about how Amsterdam developed into the city it is today.

Among other things, you will discover how to read an abacus, how sundials work and unique uses of different numeral systems that found throughout the city. The tour was designed both for math lovers and rest of the world who haven't discovered that they like math yet.

This is more of an off-the-beaten-path tour. We do walk by many of the famous buildings and monuments but I won't necessarily talk about them unless you ask. The tour is more focused on learning about hidden things that you normally wouldn't notice.

After teaching mathematics in schools for over 10 years, I have decided to take my classroom outside and use the world to investigate my love of mathematics. I am an American mathematics educator that has been exploring Amsterdam for many years now. I have created a map of all of the mathematically intriguing things inside Amsterdam city limits which currently has over 160 things. On the tour, we will see roughly 20 of these oddities in the city center.

The Mathematical Tour of Amsterdam was incredible. All we really wanted to someone who thinks outside the box when it comes to city guides, and Donovan was exactly that. Not only did he take us to memorable places we would have walked by and never noticed the details of, but he was also passionate about to the city and the subjects of conversation, which made the tour flow so easily. We only had one afternoon in Amsterdam, and it felt like we did so much for only that amount of time. This is definitely not only for math fans, but for anybody who likes walking tours and participating in discovering a new place and learning new things. Also, it is so nice that it is family friendly, there is something for everyone. We hope to do it again someday.

My family had an amazing time on this tour. Donovan has designed an extremely creative and unique experience, filled with interesting details hidden in plain sight around Amsterdam. Even as frequent visitors in this city, we learned so many new things and found gems we had never noticed before. He was very friendly, knowledgable, and engaging. I would recommend this tour to any visitors to Amsterdam -- both those that love math and those who don't can truly enjoy it and learn a great deal!

Donovans tour is so interesting and a unique idea that clearly reflects his passion for mathematics and numbers and Amsterdam. His enthusiam is obvious and this in turn makes the tour interesting and engaging. Unfortunately it rained for the whole of the tour but still we didn't feel rushed and Donovan answered our questions with patience and checked we were OK. He was very knowledgeable about many aspects of the areas we visited not just the mathematical aspects. I thoroughly recommend the tour especially if you are looking for something a little different.

This experience is a great opportunity for maths lovers and also for people that like to discover hidden secrets. I had good time walking around the city and finding little references. I liked how Donovan sees things and connect them to his passion. Oh and ps: No need for a calculator. 😅

Donovan is very friendly and knowledgeable. He makes you see fascinating things in Amsterdam you wouldn’t possibly notice otherwise, and you don’t need to be a mathematician to enjoy this experience. Highly recommended
