Seifert’s knots and areas

Procedure: This workshop follows the Dresden mathematician Herbert Seifert into the world of the knot theory: the students crawl through a giant knot in the Adventureland Mathematics, examine knotted strings, create areas by dunking wire knots into soapsuds and construct the special so-called “Seifert-areas” out of paper.
