Applicatory project

Mathematic calendar (together with Gerd Walther, University of Kiel)

13 children posters of a nationwide poster competition were selected from Friedrich-Verlag for a (everlasting) Calendar for 2000. For this calendar I and Prof. Gerd Walther (University of Kiel) designed mathematics tasks around the theme calendar that offer a variety of approaches to this subject and to its roots in various content areas. The 12 theme-focused task groups – concerning for example Friday the 13th, the church celebrations or lunar and solar year – and the informative texts are meant as didactical suggestions for cross-curricular projects, in which a topic is viewed from a historical, cultural, religious, physical and mathematical point of view.

Staging mathematics

On the occasion of the global mathematical year, the Institute of Mathematics and its Didactics together with the PHÄNOMENTA organised a competition for school classes and project groups in Schleswig-Holstein. In October 2000, the Museum of Mathematics (Beutelspacher, Gießen) was guest in the PHÄNOMENTA for three weeks. During this time, the judging of the contributions of a class- and project group competition was held and in addition to that a series of lectures on mathematics-related topics.

Curriculum development

Development of Standards for the federal state of Bremen in a working group that consisted of teachers, a representative of the LIS and experts in mathematics education.

Matelier (in cooperation with Prof. Dagmar Bönig, Department 12 of the University of Bremen)

Setup of a didactical centre at the University of Bremen, financed by the federal state of Bremen, the University of Bremen and the department 03 for mathematics. The Matelier is a room (MZH 2495), which stores a wide range of teaching materials for students and teachers (since 2011).
