  • I supervise bachelor theses for mathematics teacher education (Realschule/Gymnasium and Grund-/Förderschule (primary, secondary and special education)), as well as for the double degree bachelor Basisfach Mathematik (core mathematics degree). I also supervise master theses for mathematics teacher education (Realschule/Gymnasium (secondary education)). However, I only supervise theses with a mathematical, not a mathematical educational, focus, within areas such as analysis, algebra and number theory, stochastics, geometry, applied mathematics, mathematical logic and others.
    One possible goal of your thesis could be to address a specific (and preferably advanced) mathematical question related to the content of one (or more) lecture(s) of the corresponding degree. If you consider this, you might find it useful to familiarize yourself with the topic in question beforehand, for example consulting suitable literature. However, I expect you to present your topic using your own words and giving as much detail as possible (including a detailed summary of the required prior knowledge, a detailed elaboration of the mathematical proofs and a description of your chosen examples). In general, your thesis should be as understandable as possible for a reader with rather basic knowledge in the corresponding field.
