During the academic year, on the basis of our University, the leading professors and associate professors of the University conducted a course of seminars on topical problems of the present and possible ways of their solution for the teachers of mathematics in the city of Dnipro. This day more than 150 teachers have solemnly received certificates of professional advancement.
Schoolchildren who visited “The Day of the Future Student” attended the Fair of Specialties, where they learned about the existing and demanded specialties, talked with leading lecturers of the departments and were able to get an answer to the actual questions: “What will we study?” and “Where can we work after graduation?”
