Math — Linking the concrete to the abstract

Transtrend supports education for secondary school children, with a focus on quantitative education.

Math & education

Transtrend supports initiatives that promote education. Firstly, because inspiring education has enabled us to do the work we are doing; and secondly, Transtrend would not be able to sustain without well-educated professionals. As Transtrend’s roots are quant-oriented, we focus our efforts on quantitative education.

Hint: aaaccc = 1000


Doubling equals adding

Transtrend is the main sponsor of the "Landelijke Interuniversitaire Mathematische Olympiade" (LIMO), an annual competition in which small teams of students from Dutch or Flemish universities are given three hours to solve a number of math problems. Our task for the 2022 edition of this competition:

  • For how many of the numbers 1 to 1000 holds: c(2n) = c(n) + 1, where c(n) is defined as the sum of the digits of the number n.


Femke wins Pythagoras PWS prize 2021

Ìn the Netherlands, secondary school children write a thesis for their final school project — their "profielwerkstuk". We are very proud of Femke, who has successfully completed her profielwerkstuk on "higher dimensional tic-tac-toe" with support of Transtrend, and managed to win the Pythagoras PWS prize 2021. This is the prize for the best math-oriented profielwerkstuk of the year. Listen to her story (in Dutch) here:

Test your math skills with Transtrend's task for the 2022 edition of the LIMO competition

A big congratulations to all winners at the 60th edition of the Dutch Mathematical Olympiad!

Let us remember: one book, one pen, one child and one teacher can change the world.

Dutch Mathematical Olympiad

The Dutch Mathematical Olympiad is an annual contest for secondary school students. From the winners of the three national rounds teams are selected and intensively trained to represent The Netherlands at three international mathematical contests, such as the International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO).

For young talented students, the road towards such a contest is a once in a lifetime experience. We support paving that road.

Jet-Net & TechNet

Jet-Net & TechNet is a joint initiative of leading Dutch technology companies and secondary (pre-college) schools. Together they provide students with experiences that show that technology is challenging, meaningful and socially relevant.

Libanon Lyceum

Via Jet-Net & TechNet, we collaborate with the Libanon Lyceum in Rotterdam. This secondary school offers, among other things, a 'technasium'. We help students discover the beauty, challenges and opportunities of quant subjects.


Spectrum Multimedia & IT

Spectrum Multimedia & IT offers a safe and structured working environment for (young) adults with autism and a normal or higher IQ, in the form of daytime activities or a learning/work trajectory. The focus is not on autism, but on the development potential with multimedia and IT. We support Spectrum in implementing these initiatives.
